Would recommend it to anyone who writes letters rather
than sends emails !!
This book was leant to me by a friend as she thought I'd like it and oh how right she was so.
This was the most delightful read , with insight into personal letters from the likes of Jane Austen to her sister Cassandra, Winston Churchill to his wife clementine , letters from Wilfred Owen backed up by his poetry ( always a favourite of mine to read thanks to my college tutor who gave me a love for poetry)
I feel like I've been included in something so personal with the extracts from letters , and some had me close to tears. If you love letter writing or even receiving letters, than you must read this delightful book by John O'Connell.
