Customer Reviews

Both heart-warming and sad – great escapism!

 on 18 September 2017
By Maxine (Booklover Catlady)
I was looking for a book with a lighter vibe after a period of reading intense crime novels. I came across The Letter on Amazon and thought I’d give it a whirl. I’m so glad I did.

A sad but very sweet story of love and hate and cause and effect.

 on 6 September 2017

I rarely give a five star rating but felt compelled to this time. It touches all the emotions of love and pain and great sadness but is a picture of reality. A story of young love thwarted by people of a bygone age of not only different attitudes but selfish acts that cause great sorrow and pain which somehow affects a number of people. Well worth following to the end of the road to see where it leads. I had to and think it is one of the best reads I’ve had for some time.

A Compelling Read

From the moment I read the first page, I was hooked. The story weaves between two eras – the 30’s and the 70’s – and each character came to life. Tragedy mixed with with joy, this book stirred my emotions. The hypocritical way in which the Nuns at the convent treated the main character made my anger surface, but then came joy, tears and happiness. I really didn’t want the story to end, it was so captivating.

A very emotional and compelling book

I found this book a very compelling and emotional read. The letter from Billy brought tears to my eyes. The father of Chrissie was a terrible man who still seemed to think he had done nothing wrong even at the end. Although in his mind he wanted to make amends but couldn’t bring himself to.

What a sad emotional story

 on 26 April 2017
By Marilyn Carne
What a sad emotional story. I found it difficult to believe how one’s father could be so vindictive to his only daughter, is beyond my belief. He ruined the lives of so many people by his selfishness, ending up a very bitter and lonely man. I couldn’t put it down, and was so relieved that it had a happy ending.

A beautiful book.

By Kindle Customer
A very touching story related simply. Amazing how the reaction s of one man can have such repercussions for generations. To hear about the shockingly callous treatment of the unfortunate, unmarried young girls a d women suffered in the hands of the nuns! No compassion was shown and their belief that they were there to make them suffer is warped and outrageous!

Very emotional

 on 29 July 2017
By beverley ford
I absolutely loved this book, it had me gripped from the very beginning. The Letter arrived just over a week ago, it was a lovely, hot, sunny Sunday. I had received 3 books that day and could not decide which one to read first. I decided on The Letter and I am so pleased that I did as I just could not put it down! It had me feeling so many different emotions of hate, love and sadness. I am not going to tell you anymore about the story as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone reading this review but I would urge you to read it and see for yourself.

Delightful unputdownable a real page turner

This is an amazing story many times tragic and sad but beautifully written I found it difficult to put down or be distracted from it very descriptive I felt so involved with the story it took over me for the days it took me to read it I shall look for Kathryn’s books for future reads thank you

Heartwarming tale

 on 16 July 2016
By Mrs. Joanne Price
I have had this book on my kindle quiet a while and decided to read it whilst away on holiday in Cornwall. What a lovely book it turned out to be. It has two main female characters who’s lives are woven together even though they are a couple of generations apart. The book was easy to speed through and totally heartwarming.
