Hunt's writing is a gem in Christian fiction Oct 12, 2006
The story is about Peyton MacGruder, a newspaper columnist for the Tampa Times who is about to lose her job if she can't make her column more popular with the paper's readers. At about the same time, a plane crashes into Tampa Bay killing all on board. A woman she's never met hands her a note she believes is from the doomed plane which says, "T--I love you. All is forgiven. -Dad." Seeing an opportunity to save her column and her job, Peyton sets out to find the person for whom the note was intended to reach.
Hunt's writing is definitely better than a lot of what I have read in the Christian fiction market. Hunt has a knack for surprise endings and her writing keeps you reading to the end (I was glued to my seat for over 3 hours as I finished it!). I only gave it four stars because occasionally some of her characters seem a bit unoriginal and some elements of the story might be a bit of a stretch to believe. But that didn't distract me too much from the fascinating story. One small thing that did distract me though, was a strange literary device she used called "comments." They were written like newspaper columns, and since several characters in the story were editors, I initially thought that these were editorial columns being written for the paper. But considering the things said in the comments, I quickly figured out that these were just asides by some of the characters used by the author to give us other characters' impressions of Peyton. They were important to the story, but at first, they were a bit confusing.
Still, the story is wonderful and can be quite emotional at times. The book was completed a year before 9/11 and came out in 2001, but I thought it really spoke to some of the emotions of that time. What would you say to someone you loved if you knew your plane was about to crash? It's a question none of us should wait until the moment of death to answer. That's a question to be answered in life. This book is a good read that poses some interesting questions to think about.
Good book Jun 26, 2006
I enjoyed the book. It was not a thrilling page turner, but it had a good story and it was a good allegory for Christ's love and forgiveness for us.
Too much drama Mar 28, 2005
This was the first time I had read a book by Angela Hunt. I enjoy religious fiction, and thought The Note sounded like a really interesting book. The concept of the Heart Healer and trying to find the rightful owner of the note written by a loving father appealed to me. However, the more I read into the book, the more 'drama' there seemed to be regarding the life of the main character and her past. I felt like saying "What next with this woman and her past?"
The author needed to move on and focus on the heart felt note and the people it was intended for. There was definitely too much drama going on with the main character that took too much away from what could have been a great story.
