Format: Paperback
I'll be honest, after reading the blurb for this book, I was skeptical and didn't know if I would enjoy it.

It was bloody brilliant.

When Flora falls unexpectedly pregnant during her final year studies, she hits a huge predicament; continue a recent affair with her handsome but mysterious lecturer who dazzles her with love letters taken from the ancient tale of ‘Abelard and Heloise', or chase after the past with her estranged first love?

But will either man be there to support her during the turmoil ahead...?

This book was a complete emotional rollercoaster. I just... aarrghh! Words cannot explain how much I loved this book. I loved it so much that the second that I had finished it, I genuinely emailed Emily Williams and told her so.

I loved the letter format of the book (think Perks of Being a Wallflower) and how every day, Flora writes a letter to her unborn child about the circumstances that led up to her being conceived. We learn about Flora's relationships, her friendships, and her troubles. The thing that hit home for me was that Flora was in university - albeit her last year, where I am in my first - and I just kept comparing myself to her. Would I be as strong as she was if I suddenly got pregnant? Would I be able to manage? I would like to think so.

Flora is such a strong character that always tries to do right by everybody. I loved her friendships with Brian and Brooke and even though Brooke could be a real pain sometimes and do things that angered me so much, I know that she only had Flora's best interests at heart and that she was looking out for her best friend.

“Mistakes happen and life is full of twists and turns, but you mustn’t let any set backs hold you back from moving forward.

Letters to Eloise is soo beautiful and highly emotional.

Flora unlucky in love, finds herself unexpectedly pregnant and being on her own she writes letters to her unborn child explaining how shes feeling and whats going on in her life with notes to her baby.

Just when we think poor Flora will be lucky and get her happy ever after all is not as it seems and we are hit with a devastating shock of a bombshell.

A truely heart warming and fantastically written book which definitely deserves 5 stars!

This isn't my typical reading genre, but I was intrigued by the format of letters from a mother to her as yet unborn child. I'm glad I took a chance! I was hooked from the very first page.

Sometimes frustrating, almost always heart wrenching, the book has a ring of authenticity that you are reading someone's deeply personal real life story here.

The ending devastated me, so beware, but I'm sure you'll be caught up in what happens along the way.

Always interesting to read books by my local authors, and this one cleverly makes you think about all of lifes decisions. There is plenty of emotion, smiles and more, for everyone to relate to. I also enjoyed the slightly more personal format, which was a more intelligent/challenging 'Dear diary ...'

*I received a free e-copy of this book in return for an honest review*

When Flora, a post-graduate Uni student, falls unexpectedly pregnant during her final year of studies her plans for her future are thrown into chaos as she now has someone else to look out for. As Flora reads many baby books she must figure out if she will continue with her recent affair with a handsome lecturer or should she chase after the past with her estranged first love?

Letters to Eloise is an example of epistolary fiction as it’s made up of a series of letters from Flora to her unborn child. They start as soon as Flora realises she’s pregnant and follows all the ups and downs of pregnancy. The letters also slowly reveal the circumstances of her baby being conceived, the potential dads (though Flora is always confident in who the father is, it takes a while for her to tell the reader) and the good and bad times Flora has had with friends, family and love interests. Sometimes it can be a bit confusing as Flora’s letters go back and forth from the present to various points in the past but I soon got my head around it.

I’ve never read a book where one of the main themes or storyline is pregnancy (and I’ve never been pregnant myself) so I was unsure how I would connect with a book, and a character, whose pretty much whole life now revolves around being pregnant and being an expectant mother. But I did connect with Flora. Her student life and the friends she has at university, are what pulled me in to start with but she’s a likable and understandable character and I wanted to see her happy.

I loved the dynamic between Flora, her best friend Brooke and their housemate Brian.
