Beschreibung

Mother Elspeth is fond of saying to her daughter that 'the first volume of my life is out of print'. But when a bomb hits an Edinburgh street and Margaret finds her mother crouched in the ruins of her bedroom pulling armfuls of yellowed letters onto her lap, the past Elspeth has kept so carefully locked away is out in the open.for ever.

Jessica Brockmole grew up in the Midwest but began writing Letters from Skye while she was living in Edinburgh. After her second child was born, she and her husband escaped the city and spent a week on the Isle of Skye. The story came to her on the journey home and she started scribbling notes in the car. To begin with, the outpouring was less a novel than an extended letter to herself, written late at night when everyone else had gone to bed. A letter reminding her not to lose touch with the people she loved, and reassuring her that she would be stronger for overcoming her fears. Jessica now lives in Indiana with her husband and two children. Letters from Skye, her first novel, has been sold in twenty-two countries.

"This is an enchanting love story, told in a series of letters . It's beautifully imagined and blissfully romantic." The Times "This is a gentle love story. Telling it through letters makes the characters more real . given depth and richness by letters that speak straight from the heart." The Scotsman "A captivating love story that celebrates the power of hope to triumph over time and circumstance." -- Vanessa Diffenbaugh, New York Times bestselling author of The Language of Flowers "Very entertaining" Sunday Mirror "A poignant tale of a stubborn love that bridges the lives and wars of two generations, Letters From Skye gives the reader a story to inhale as well as read, unfolding amid the gripping panorama of a changing world-an absorbing and rewarding saga of loss and discovery." -- Kate Alcott, New York Times bestselling author of The Dressmaker
