Dear Edward was inspired by the true story of Ruben Van Assouw, the sole survivor of a plane crash in 2010.
Is Dear Edward sad?
Both narrative threads ultimately culminate with the passengers’ final moments before the crash of the plane. One only has to read the blurb for Dear Edward to know that it is a novel about grief, loss, overcoming tragedy, and survival. Going into it, one expects a deeply emotional, heart-wrenching read.
What is the theme of Dear Edward?
The storyline and the book’s overarching themes of survival, friendship, hope, and learning to love again after heartbreak are powerful and have stuck with me throughout the year. It will definitely hold a spot in my Top 5 books of 2020. Have you read Dear Edward?
