A Love Story as told Through Letters



When I first saw this book, Letters from Skye, I didn't think I wanted to read it.  It's written as letters between the characters.  I'm glad I decided to read it.  We meet Elspeth Dunn, a young lady who gets a fan letter from an American, Davey.  Elspeth, a poet, lives on the Isle of Skye in Scotland and has never left it.  As the letters continue, the reader discovers that they have fallen in love amongst the backdrop of war.  Interspersed are letters written by Margaret Elspeth's daughter.  After an air raid which results in the letters being found, Elspeth disappears.  Margaret slowly learns about her mother and Davey.  A debut novel by Jessica Brockmole.
