Letters from Skye
Book #79 Read in 2013
Letters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole
This book is told entirely in letters and spans two world war. It details a love story that survives incredible odds. Elspeth is a poet and receives a sort of fan letter from Davey. She is from Scotland and he from America; the two begin a pen pal relationship. Gradually, through their letters, they fall in love. Love is never simple and factoring in Elspeth's husband and the physical distance, their love story is no different. World War 1 begins and Davey enlists. Years later, when World War 2 is going on, Elspeth is launched back in memories of the first war, and the war-time romance her adult daughter is having with a soldier reminds Elspeth vividly of Davey. Can these two people ever get together?
I loved this book. The writing was wonderful and the characters were ones that I cared about immediately. This book had historical elements to it, great romance and the hook of hoping for a happily ever after ending. I highly recommend it.
I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a review.
