Tina Craig longs to escape her violent husband. She works all the hours God sends to save up enough money to leave him, also volunteering in a charity shop to avoid her unhappy home. Whilst going through the pockets of a second-hand suit, she comes across an old letter, the envelope firmly sealed and unfranked. Tina opens the letter and reads it – a decision that will alter the course of her life for ever…

Billy Stirling knows he has been a fool, but hopes he can put things right. On 4th September 1939 he sits down to write the letter he hopes will change his future. It does – in more ways than he can ever imagine…

Emotional, raw……life

This book chose me. For those who live and breathe books, I’m sure you can relate to the moment a book cover stands out to you. Even though many other books may catch your eye, there is always one you cannot forget. The chosen book.

Well written and believable

I was riveted with this book almost as soon as I had finished the first chapter. The characters soon came alive and familiar. The writer managed to stir the reader’s emotions but it was a happy ending – or was it? Chrissie endured so much suffering from the day she arrived in Ireland including seeing her little son snatched away from her. She had put her life on hold, not allowing herself a happy normal relationship because she felt let down by her first love. Actually it was her father, he who should have known better, who let her down most of all in the cruellest way. A must read.

I was blown away by this novel.

A lovely story beautifully told

By Grace J Reviewerlady
This is a story of two women, who lived in different decades with the common thread of a letter. It is quite unlike anything I have read before with a similar description, as it is not a time travel tale.

Superb book – good read for men too

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

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.

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!

Lovely holiday read
