The Envelope Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Envelope

This book doesn't really have one main character, unless it is the envelope itself. It is about the lives of four distinctly different people from different backgrounds. At the beginning, the first character, a young girl, reaches rock bottom and seemingly has no where to turn. A mysterious envelope appears on her front door. What the envelope as in it and what she does with it (passing it on to another person, who passes it on to another, etc) is the focus of the book. The book is classified as Southern regional fiction and gives a wonderful descriptive journey of small town life in the South. I enjoyed it and want to get this author's first book so I can hopefully enjoy it as well. The Envelope, by the way, is an excellent Christmas book.
