Product description

Violet Ackerman has drifted through a career, four children and a divorce without ever knowing who she is or what she wants. After moving to the coast, she starts receiving a series of mysterious letters sent from a mother and baby home in 1959, written by a pregnant twenty-year-old Elizabeth to her best friend. These letters intersperse Violet's turbulent relationships with her lover, her infuriating son and the eccentric fellow members of the Village Committee. Who is sending Violet these letters, and why? What will happen to Elizabeth's baby? "The Letters" invites us see what happens when we don't run away. Will love be enough to encourage Violet to stay?

Customer reviews

By Emma Kehayas 10 Aug 2009 5

'The Letters' was beautifully written, surprising and poignant.

The story unfurls intriguingly, and I found it increasingly harder to put the book down as I read on.
