What this book is about? here's a short description of its website:

Violet Ackerman has drifted through a career, four children and a divorce without ever knowing who she is or what she wants. After moving to the coast, she starts receiving a series of mysterious letters sent from a mother and baby home in 1959, written by a pregnant twenty-year-old Elizabeth to her best friend. These letters intersperse Violet's turbulent relationships with her lover, her infuriating son and the eccentric fellow members of the Village Committee. Who is sending Violet these letters, and why? 'The Letters' invites us see what happens when we don't run away. Will love be enough to encourage Violet to stay?

What people say:

"Finely observed, intense and eminently readable."
Jacqui Lofthouse, author of Bluethroat Morning

"Violet lives on in your imagination long after you've finished reading her story."
Susan Utting, author of Houses Without Walls

"An entirely entrancing tale, with visuals that leap and spin from every page."
Caroline Smailes, author of In Search of Adam

We want to thank author Fiona Robin, who is a supporter of Eco-Libris, for the copy donated! The book, published by Snowbooks, won't be out until the beginning of March, so this is a great opportunity to get a copy before everyone else does! So what are you waiting for?

Yours,

Hoe foreign the concept of writing actual paper letters has become. On the one hand, electronic mail saves paper, but how romantic is that? I keep in touch with my friends this way, and miss the excitement of finding that little white envelope in the mailbox. Ironically, the last "letter" I wrote was to myself, a few years ago. I was recovering from a medical/life crisis and needed to get back in touch with myself. I just found the letters, written in a book, last night, and read some of them. They are full of advice and quotes and love, and really helped me get through a time when no one else could help me. Writing can be a powerful tool, it takes you out of your self. Writing letters, to anyone, is good therapy, no matter the format!
