Having built a rich empire and keen to win the favor of the royal court, Hilda and AEligard have little time for their daughter, Catheryn.
But one man, Selwyn, is intrigued by the intelligent and high-spirited girl.
Selwyn sends Catheryn a love letter as a joke, disguising it as though it is from one of her father's thanes. Catheryn is fascinated by the letter, and cannot imagine who would be capable of sending a poem of such imagination and beauty.
When Selwyn offers to help Catheryn identify the mysterious suitor, she accepts, and they start to realise that they have more in common than they thought.
Soon, Catheryn finds herself falling in love with Selwyn instead....
But the strict hierarchy of Anglo-Saxon England stands in their way.
Selwyn, a steward, could never be considered Catheryn's equal, let alone an eligible suitor.
Will they manage to stay together despite the odds?
Or will duty tear Selwyn and Catheryn apart?
Emily Murdoch is a medieval historian and novelist. She is also the author of Conquests and Captives.

The narrator and story transport you back in time
I really enjoyed Love Letters. The narrator was perfect to capture the feel of Anglo-Saxon times with a story that was romantic and charming. This is a "prequel" to Captives, which is also a very good book that follows Catheryn later in life and the hard existence as a Captive when the English king took over. Selwyn and Catheryn were best friends as children but as adults they have preconceived notions about what kind of adult the other as become. They are separated by the fact that Catheryn is way above Selwyn in class and privilege but they are still drawn back to their friendship. Catheryn is worrying about discovering the author of love letters that she receives and overlooks her growing attraction to Selwyn. I loved the portrayal of her parents are being obsessed with impressing the royal family and acquiring wealth and ignoring their daughter. I also adored the other characters that fill this sweet and charming book. The length, just under 3 hours, was perfect. The writing style, situation and dialog seemed spot-on. Great job.
