I was way too excited to post this...I hope you like it
I have just finished ‘Love Letters’ by Katie Fforde. And I
absolutely loved it. I was encapsulated by every word and it is a real page
turner. While Laura’s character is much like my own, quiet but changed by her
experiences at university, the revealing of feelings should, I feel, have taken
place earlier. Then it would be a typical romantic book. But it wasn’t, because
it kept me on tenterhooks until page 365, which is quite a feat in itself. It
was a very ethicising read because the things that happened were so unexpected.
Laura has dealt with the fact that Dermot does not return her love, and is
settling down for the night at home when he nearly knocks her door down! Though
it was hard, she had finally accepted that he didn’t want anything and was
moving forward with her life when he comes crashing back into her life and
turned it upside down. Again. There is a lot that happens in this book which
ends with Dermot confirming whether its love between them or not – I think it’s
very important that he has the last word in this case – and results in Laura
Horsley landing her dream job.
