I became completely swept up in this wonderful novel. The story is written purely through letters and although I initially thought that this might be hard to get into, but it flowed beautifully and with ease and I was soon captivated by the letters between Elspeth and Davey. I really liked that we were able to read the novel in this way, I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know then through their letters and I really felt like I understood everything about them this way – it felt like I knew all their thoughts and feelings and their most personal hopes for life and for each other. The letters touched me on so many levels, I laughed with Elspeth and Davey, I felt for them and I even cried too, I felt SUCH an emotional connection with both of them.
I think the form of letters is definitely one of the strengths of the book, with this Jessica has created a beautiful and meaningful depth to the characters and their personal entwined story together.
The Isle of Skye sounds beautiful, I could really picture it in my mind through the descriptions from the letters, and I found myself wanting to travel there. I must admit that over the course of the book I fell in love with letter writing, and I’m now very keen to start writing letters again.
Letters From Skye is a truly touching and powerful novel that moved me in so many ways. It is captivating, romantic and a true gem of a story. A must read book.
This book makes me a little nostalgic for the lost art of letter writing. I would much rather receive a carefully thought out, hand written letter than a typo ridden text any day.
I give Letters from Skye 4/5.
I do think the ending did seem a little rushed & contrived.
