dual POV MG, connecting through 250-year old letters

Discussion started on

I'm still in the 1750s, and I'm looking for suggestions of MG novels, preferably historical fiction, wherein letters are used to connect two characters over a great period of time? Thanks so much! :applepie

WHEN AUDREY MET ALICE by Rebecca Behrens! LOVED this book! Audrey, a contemporary first daughter, finds Alice Roosevelt's diary hidden in the White House. The novel is told through diary entries and Audrey's first person pov.

How about Moon Over Manifest? The story takes place during the 1930s, but the character reads newspaper articles and letters from the WWI era to try to find out about her father's life back then.

This isn't quite what you're after--it's YA--but you still might enjoy Jennifer Donnelly's Revolution.
