When you focus on one thing, one person, and one goal you´ll do just about anything to make it happen. Frankie Cooper has grown up surrounded by her outrageous family in the small town of Edenville, North Carolina. The problem with growing up with a suffocating family is that even though her 18th birthday is behind her they still don´t see her as an adult. But when she´s finally in the arms of the man she´s been dreaming about, none of that matters. She´s been in love with Maxwell for years and nothing will get in the way of starting her life with him. She only needs to prove to her family that she´s capable, and then they´ll learn to let her go. Will she finally convince her family she´s ready to be on her own or will she come crashing back to reality and realize she´s thrown a match on the bridge that should lead her back home?

On a winter´s day in 2002, a bottle shaped like a tear washed up on the English coast. It contained a letter written in French, a lock of hair, and a mystery. Only one thing could be known for certain – that the writer of the letter was a mother, grieving for her lost child, Maurice. Moved by the woman’s heartache, Karen Liebreich sets out on an epic journey to piece together the mother’s tale. Her book is the amazing true story of one woman’s search for another, and a poignant reflection on love, loss and motherhood. When this book was first published in 2006, the quest remained unresolved, but when The Letter in the Bottle was translated into French a few years later the unbelievable happened – the mother picked up the book and recognised her letter… After seven years of searching by the author, all questions would at last be answered and the mystery finally resolved. Liebreich concludes her epic quest, meeting the woman who sent the bottle years ago and coming to understand the loss that was at the heart of one mother’s impulse to communicate with the unknown.
