The Violets of March by Sarah Jio

The main character, Emily Wilson, is a successful writer (well, she's had one bestseller made into a movie) in her 20s when her handsome husband leaves her for another woman. She flies across the country to the state of Washington to live with her aunt for a month while she recovers. In her guest bedroom, she finds a diary with entries from 1943 that speak to her heart.

I had mixed feelings about this one. On one hand, I did read it in one afternoon. On the other hand, it was really predictable and very much like a cheesy, bad made-for-TV movie. And those can be fun to watch when it's rainy outside and there's nothing much else to do. So...can't recommend it unless you really are looking for an easy, cheesy book to read on a rainy afternoon.
