Today I have a review of The Lost Letters of William Woolf by Helen Cullen. A big thank you to Kathleen Carter Communications for the invitation to review and for the gifted copy! The Lost Letters of William Woolf will be published via Harlequin/Graydon House on June 4, 2019.
William Woolf has an intriguing job. He’s a letter detective at a special depot for dead letters. His job is to solve the mysteries of torn packages, missing addresses, illegible handwriting, etc.; basically anything that would keep a letter or package from being delivered properly. He works to solve it so it is delivered to its rightful owner.
William happens upon a letter addressed to “My Greatest Love” and is immediately enamored. The woman writing the letter says she has not yet met her soulmate. William begins to think HE could be her love.
Did I mention William is already married?
It’s a listless marriage where neither is happy. They have each evolved over time, and it’s hard to remember how or why the connected in the first place. The story is ultimately about this relationship. At the same time, the love between the two is palpable, and I wanted them to work out even if they are very much two different people.
These were wonderfully-developed complex characters, and the storyline has a touch of mystery. It was a remarkable, beautifully-told story overall. The Lost Letters of William Woolf is a tale of both sadness and joy, one of broken hearts and high flying hope.
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
Lost letters have only one hope for survival…
The Dead Letters Depot.
Inside the walls of a former tea factory, letter detectives work to solve mysteries: missing zip codes, illegible handwriting, rain-smudged ink, lost address labels, torn packages, forgotten street names—these are the twists of fate behind missed birthdays, broken hearts, unheard confessions, pointless accusations, unpaid bills and unanswered prayers.
But when letters arrive addressed simply to “My Great Love,” one longtime letter detective with face his greatest mystery yet, as his quest to follow the clues becomes a life-changing journey of love, hope and courage.
Helen Cullen’s The Lost Letters of William Woolf is an enchanting novel about the resilience of the human heart and the complex ideas we hold about love—and a passionate ode to the art of letter writing.
