I read the paperback edition of Letters From Skye by Jessica Brockmole. I love historical fiction written in the form of letters as is the case with Letters From Skye.
Letters From Skye by Jessica Brockmole alternates between two different eras... That of both World War I and World War II as this novel parallels both the lives of Elspeth Dunn and David Graham and that of Elspeth's daughter Margaret Dunn her budding romance during World War II.
Additionally, Letters From Skye delves into the relationship between mother and daughter as there are parts of Elspeth's life Margaret knows little about prior to her birth. Margaret finds herself trying to uncover her mother's past when her mother goes missing after an air raid during World War II.
Letters From Skye is a gripping tale and takes readers on journey. I liked how the story unfolds and is told through a series of letters. There are funny moments, there are sad moments, and everything in between.
I initially became interested in reading Letters From Skye by Jessica Brockmole because I enjoyed reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows so much. Although both novels have a few things in common, they are different from each other in other ways. I liked Letters From Skye by Jessica Brockmole, but not as much as I did The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
