Epistolary Love Story

Letters from Skye
By Jessica Brockmole

Genre: Historical Fiction

Review: A nostalgic, cozy read. A novel told through letters.  Young Scottish poet Elspeth lives a quiet, isolated, peaceful yet happy existence on the Isle of Skye. Letters from her first fan, American college student Davey, turn into something more. Clandestine meetings in Edinburgh and London open the world up to Elspeth, who'd never left Skye. Everything you'd expect from wartime romance, heartbreak, etc. A bit slow two-thirds of the way through, but still worth reading if you liked The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.
