I won this book at the Tacoma Reader’s group. Would I have picked it up on my own? Ummm, not sure for one thing after reading the blurb I really didn’t think the plot could sustain 360 pages. Oh My Gosh, was I wrong. When I read “THE END”, I felt I was saying goodbye to friends. I felt so strongly I even wrote to the author encouraging her to write a sequel.
Here are some of the things that other authors are saying. Kristin Hannah, “Letters from Home is an absolutely lovely debut novel filled with endearing characters and lively descriptions. Fans of World War II romantic fiction will definitely enjoy this fast-paced story.”
Jill Barnett, “An intimate, touching, and romantic story of the Greatest Generation.”
These are but two. Set in WWII it is romantic, and tragic. So many lives were literally ripped apart. The secondary characters are strong and I’d love to read Betty and Julia’s continued story as well as follow Morgan and Liz. Again, in my opinion, this book begs for a sequel. And, this time I’ll be first in line to purchase it.
Note: I wrote this review just after I finished reading Letters From Home. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to meet Kristina. She’s fantastic, warm, funny, personal, she fully engages her listeners. She has got more stories to tell, if there’s a book signing or speaking event featuring her in your area it’s a don’t miss opportunity. I’d say Kristina is as good a speaker as author but I’m not sure anything can top her book. Wellllll maybe another book.
