I received a free e-copy of The Girl in the Letter by Emily Gunnis from Goodreads for my honest review.

Ivy Jenkins is sent to St. Margarets in 1956. She is pregnant but not married and her family is ashamed. She is told that when she has her baby, it will be adopted and then she gets to go back home.

In present-day, Sam, a mother and journalist is exhausted and needs a break in her career. She comes across a letter and decides to investigate the information in it. Further letters emerge come forward and Sam starts to make sense out of the mystery. There are lots of twists and turns in this book all relating to the mothers, children, and the staff from the home for unmarried mothers. The horrible cruelty the mothers were subjected to is cruel and disturbing but based on true events. The house that contain all these secrets is also about to be demolished so the truth needs to be found quickly.

A horrific and heart wrenching read that you can't put down, yet will leave you an emotional mess.
