The novel is anchored by two deeply imagined, fully inhabited characters who give voice to a love story that is as emotionally powerful as it is intellectually spirited.

I always enjoy stories told through a series of letters. This story and the characters were well developed through the letters between Frances and Bernard as well as letters to their friends. I was initially turned off by the frequent references to religion but their religious devotion, or lack thereof, became almost a 3rd character in the book. The author had so many pithy insights. I often wished for a pencil and paper so I could record them. And I cried at the end-something I rarely do with a recorded book.

Enjoyed in a way I didn't expect.
I started this book to find another 84 Charing Cross Road. It wasn't but I liked it as well. The book is a series of letters, an absolutely charming way to tell a story. While the method lends itself to lighter topics, this story didn't avoid difficult subjects which I appreciated.
