This is book # 1 out of the 30 that I want to read this year! Mulberry Park has some really fun parts and a lot of it also choked me up. But it was a really good read. I love how they resolved all the threads in the story at the end.
Each day after work, Claire Harper drives to Mulberry Park and jogs for miles, hoping to find a respite from her sadness. It's a futile effort, until the evening a letter falls from its hiding place in a nearby tree. Inside the bright pink envelope emblazoned with the words "To God From Analisa" is a note written by a seven-year-girl, urging God to look after her parents in Heaven and help those she loves on Earth. On impulse, Claire writes back, hoping to preserve Analisa's innocent belief in answered prayers---even if Claire lost her own faith when her young son was killed in a hit-and-run accident three years earlier.
