    1. I don t understand the number of 4 and 5 star reviews on this novel I was swayed to buy it by the reviews But it really is the most lazy kind of writing style and boring to read It s not the story that s boring, that could be told well, although in this version the characters are one dimensional and annoyingly stupid But the writing style is really simplified and repetitive I m 55% through and if I read another description of a steaming mug cup of anything I shall boil the book Hard, as it s a k [...]

    2. 4 stars This was an easy, enjoyable read While the writing style was very simple, there are some heavy topics covered within this story domestic violence, rape, a young mother forced to give up her baby Though I found the author s writing to be quite basic, there was something about the book and the characters that were very likeable for me My heart broke a few times throughout the novel, but I also had a heartwarming sense of closure at the end.

    3. The Letter is a historical romance that spans across three generations, and like most love stories it tells about love found and love lost.Even though this subject is often predictable with its indiscriminate apportioning of pain and heartacheill each story has its own unique experiencesis is one such story.It s not a fluffy read, it s a story about two women, a generation apart, who s struggles have a lot in common, and how time and circumstance will conspire to bridge the gap between them to u [...]

    6. I was looking for a book with a lighter vibe after a period of reading intense crime novels I came across The Letter on and thought I d give it a whirl I m so glad I did.This is both a heart warming novel and one tinged with sadness too It s incredibly easy to read and just be pulled along into the story, losing track of time If you are looking for some fiction escapism this will do the job nicely.The book moves between two timelines In modern day, an old letter, never posted is discovered in an [...]

    7. This story contains many of the aspects I love about the art of fiction writing love, loss, time travel and brilliantly developed characters I thought the modus operandi was inspired I love it when an author can confidently jump between time periods to deliver a beautifully interwoven story Taking the reader on a journey from the east coast of America, the rustic farmlands of Southern Ireland and the bustling streets of Manchester, I was gripped from start to finish I even unashamedly wiped away [...]

    8. 2.5 stars round up to 3 This dual narrative set in the 1970 s and 1939 was a fairly predictable storyline that had a Hallmark Hall of Fame type vibe The readers are taken from Manchester to Ireland and the USA I did find the story was a nice light read and I would love to read by the author.

    10. The premise of finding an unposted 30 year old letter in a suit pocket in a charity shop was a very good one but oh dear the story was stretched out The book was over reliant on coincidences It also stretched The limits of credibility that Chrissy lived for 30 years within 5 miles of the convent, blissfully unaware that of the fact that Grace, who had befriended her in the convent, lived just down the road In fact nobody appeared to know anybody something very hard to believe in rural Ireland On [...]

    11. I actually won a copy of this book in a giveaway on Twitter and I am so glad I did as I don t know when or if I would have come across this wonderful book and the author otherwise.This truly is a wonderful book, I found it to be very deep and beautifully written and it is one book that I think will stay with me for a long time.The story starts with Tina who works in a charity shop and comes across a letter dated many years before Intrigued by the people and the story behind the letter Tina sets [...]

    12. Having struggled through Donna Tartt s The Goldfinch, a book that took me almost three weeks to read, I was looking for something light to read over the Christmas The name Kathryn Hughes caught my attention because I have a niece who spells her name the same way, with a K and a Y When I read in the acknowledgements that her husband s name is Robert Hughes, my nephew s name, I smiled at the coincidence and decided to give the book a read Of course, the coincidences didn t stop there It is a book [...]

    13. Part 1 of this book was awesome It hooked me in, sunk its claws in my heart, and sent me back in time I was in love with the characters and plead that things would work out Then Part 2 and Part 3 happened.And they sucked.Bad As in they ruined the whole story Most of the time I was rolling my eyes over the amount of corniness in the contrived dialogue No one talks like that Each and every word broke the magic of Part 1 and brought me back to a remembrance that I was, here, in my house, sitting on [...]

Correcta y anodina Ten a guardada esta novela en mi librer a desde hace un tiempo, y estaba all porque en GoodReads y otros sitios estaba con los r tulos de misterio y suspenso nada m s alejado de la realidad La novela, en su primera quinta parte plantea la situaci n, y en la gran fracci n restante busca la respuesta a un porqu , lo cual no se traduce en suspenso, misterio, ni siquiera intriga Hay una inquietud, pero no m s est tambi n la historia de amor de por medio, pero la novela nunca alcan [...]

    20. Audiobook The story was nice and romantic, but the narrator read the characters with an accent that made me feel like I m listening to a British soap opera, and it got on my nerves real quick.I think this one should be read and not listened to.

    21. Gostei muito apesar de abordar temas pesados.Mesmo assim, de f cil leitura e uma pessoa n o descansa enquanto n o descobrir o que acontece s personagens.

    22. This is such a can t put it down read that I advise you to clear your day once you pick it up because you won t be putting it down again anytime soon What started as a I will have a little read for half an hour led to a very lazy day and night on the sofa and our Sunday roast being 2 hours later than normal The prologue is a sweet opening of a granddaughter asking her grandparents how they met then BANG literally as we meet Tina who is living with her abusive, possessive husband Tina escapes on [...]
