it was amazing

One of my favorite formats - a story told through letters. But we only see the letter-writers piece, we are left to put the story together based on the continuity of her letters. I am loving this book. The letter-writer can be a bit snobby at times, I think. The book starts in 1899, and her thinking is quite progressive, even now, but especially for that time period. Enjoying this very much !

Finished it last night - one of those books that I didn't want to end. The author (Hailey) did such a great job in getting the message across in elegant, subtle (and sometimes not so subtle ways). This was a joy to read and should have been my pick for book club. I miss the main character already !
