Letters from Skye draws you in from the moment you read the first words. It all starts in 1912, when David Graham an 18 year old from Illinois, writes a letter to a poet named, Elspeth Dunn. Elspeth is 24 years old and lives on the Isle of Skye in, Scotland. A simple fan letter turns into an exchange of letters over a long period of time.
The letters take place before and after WWI. As a reader, you, also get to experience another letter exchange between others characters, during WWII.
This novel of correspondence is a fast, entertaining read that explores the relationships between people through written word, an art form that is being lost with the technological face-paced world we live in.
This lovely, little book will have a few surprises in store for you, despite having a star crossed lovers theme to it.
