Kayt Roth hits us with such a fantastic emotional piece in Letters to Helen! When Mattie’s fiancé’s mistress (whew!) kills herself, it throws Mattie’s life into turmoil. She seeks solace in her friend Helen, but discovers she can feel love and trust again through a chance encounter with a man named Mark. It sounds a little convoluted, but it never feels that way, and Roth’s writing is packed with great emotional depth! This novel teaches that there’s more love in the heart than anyone knows and ...more

I've no idea what to say. It's just so bitter sweet. It took my breath away. An excellent story of love, heartbreak, first love, realities, disappointment, finding identity, courage, bravery, cowardice, hurdles in life, dreams shattered, love found anew, dreams realised and everything in between of these. It has everything that happens in a person's life.

Mattie is a normal person. Just like any other person living a modest life. Her wedding is coming soon and she is beyond happy. Though John see

I absolutely loved this! Mattie is so relatable, she worries about the stuff that we all do - love, weight, career, etc. We've all been with that guy who's a jerk, and then afterward wonder why. Highly recommend this read. :)

"Letters to Helen" is a historical fiction romantic drama written by author Kayt Roth, who was kind enough to send me a free .mobi file of the novel in exchange for an honest review. I love, love, love historical fiction, and I was SO excited when I accepted to review "Letters to Helen" because I knew from the synopsis that it would be good--and, thankfully, I was right!
