Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham is the first I've read of this author and certainly won't be the last. Published by Revell, it's classified as historical fiction and there is nothing of the Gospel in it. It's a sweet story of a girl who works in the Dead Letter Office of the USPS in Washington, DC. She gets caught up in reading dead letters, particularly ones written by a man named Thomas. She dreams up a story about him and then decides to find him. I loved Penny, she was a fun character. This is one of the more enjoyable books I've read in a long time (finished it in two days). It's a highly recommended volume from me.

From the back cover:
For three years Penny Ercanbeck has been opening other people's mail. Dead ends are a reality for clerks at the dead letter office, and she dreams of something more--a bit of intrigue, perhaps a taste of romance. When she comes across a letter from a brokenhearted man to his one true love, it becomes her mission to place this lost letter into the hands of its intended recipient.
But when Penny's undertaking leads her to the intriguing man who touched her soul with his words, everything grows more complicated. She wants to find the rightful owner of the letter, and yet...she find herself caring--perhaps too much--for the one who wrote it.
