Mislead & Disappointed
A good story would've helped. The letter is a red-herring!!!This is the same old story of girl meets boy, boy goes astray, girl meets new boy & has to make a decision. I had such great expectations for this story but it all came to nought. It was all I could do to finish it. I did finish it though because I wanted to know more about the Letter.
This was supposed to be a period piece I guess - the period right after WWII ended - where the young people were rebuilding their lives. But it turned into a very dull romance with a wimpy heroine. Yeah, she reworked an old family cottage on the moors but it could've been so much better. No excitement, no real history, no sex, no mystery . . . .
high & nasal
Back to bare bones outline & tell a real story.
