Patterson, James. Sam's Letters to Jennifer.

Well, I would not have checked this book out by choice, not that I could have since it's on the hold's list unitl sometime next year, but my boss gave it to me to read because it takes place in a region I grew up in. The whole story rotates around a young woman who returns to the town she grew up in after she learns her grandma is sick in the hospital. Once at the house, she finds letters her grandmother has written to her and discovers a past her grandmother never revealed. The letters become significant not just because they unfold the true story of her grandparent's life together, but also, because they hold an important message about love and happiness and the woman's future.

The book is a sentimental tear jerker, but is a quick, light read and rather enjoyable.
