Letters to Iris is the heart-aching story of three women from the brilliant author of The Reading Group and Things I Want My Daughters to Know. Elizabeth Noble is a Number One Sunday Times bestselling author and this is her latest title.
Tess’s life is about to change forever. With a secret that will transform her life in nine months, the only person that Tess feels she can confide in is her grandmother, Iris. However, Iris is slipping away a little more each day. Fate brings Gigi in to the picture, and her heart goes out to Tess. The two become unlikely friends and along the way they uncover Iris’ secret: a suitcase filled with old letters that could hold the answers to everything Tess thought was gone.
This emotional tale of friendships and family as well as taking chances and finding happiness, even in the most unexpected of times and places.
This author has certainly not lost her touch despite it being six years since her last book. This is warm, affectionate, engaging and insightful. Well written with well portrayed characters who interconnect with each other in a tale that grabs your interest from the first chapters and holds it to the satisfying final page. - Sarah Broadhurst
