Letters From Skye, Jessica Brockmole’s enchanting debut novel, is a sweeping saga told through a series of letters sent between the two main characters.
In March 1912, Elspeth Dunn, a published poet living on Scotland’s Isle of Skye, receives a fan letter from college student David Graham, who is studying in America. Elspeth is intrigued and flattered. A correspondence develops between them that slowly blossoms into love, but is sadly interrupted by the start of World War I. David volunteers as an ambulance driver in France, while Elspeth waits anxiously on Skye, praying he will survive.
In June 1940, as World War II begins, Elspeth’s daughter Margaret falls in love with an RAF pilot. When a bomb drops on Elspeth’s home in Edinburgh, her secret cache of letters is revealed. Elspeth has mysteriously disappeared, accidentally leaving one letter behind. Margaret sets out on a journey to locate her mother, using clues from the forgotten letter.
This stirring novel has an engaging storyline, and celebrates the power of love and how it can triumph even through times of adversity, and also how the written word can capture the heart.
