Every so often a love story comes along to remind us that sometimes, in our darkest hour, hope shines a candle to light our way.
Discover the Number One best seller that has captured thousands of hearts worldwide....
Tina Craig longs to escape her violent husband. She works all the hours God sends to save up enough money to leave him, also volunteering in a charity shop to avoid her unhappy home. Whilst going through the pockets of a second-hand suit, she comes across an old letter, the envelope firmly sealed and unfranked. Tina opens the letter and reads it - a decision that will alter the course of her life for ever....
Billy Stirling knows he has been a fool, but hopes he can put things right. On 4th September 1939 he sits down to write the letter he hopes will change his future. It does - in more ways than he can ever imagine....
The Letter tells the story of two women, born decades apart, whose paths are destined to cross and how one woman's devastation leads to the other's salvation.

Very contrived but a sweet and captivating book.

The narrator is excellent and this is a good summer read. You can't help liking it.

If mouth sounds bug you, skip this one...

Any additional comments?

I probably would have enjoyed this story more if I hadn't listened to an audio version. The narrator was fantastic except for one important thing- she smacks her tongue and lips every time she voices a characters, and if you are anything like me, it will make you crazy. Not sure why they can't edit that stuff out in this day and age.

This book has it all for me, struggles, heartbreak, love and loss, motherhood. Pain friendship.
I loved the story, the narration the jumps twists and turns.
And I identified with parts of the book myself.
Firm favourite.

My first Audible book

Really enjoyed this book and found it quite compelling listening. Not a significant work of fiction but good for a rainy day.
