Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

May 2011 Book of the Month.

Two people. An unforgettable moment. One extraordinary love story. In the days of twitter and facebook this charming story is a reminder that during WW2 forging a long distance relationship was very different. Based around the experiences of the author's grandparents and with hints of a Cyrano de Bergerac this is a gripping and memorable story of love and loss.

If you like Kristina McMorris you might also like to read books by Santa Montefiore, Pam Jenoff and Nicholas Sparks.

Synopsis

Letters from Home by Kristina McMorris

In Chicago, Illinois, two people are about to lock eyes across a crowded dance floor. The following moment will spark the love story of a lifetime! The year is 1944 and America has just entered the war. Young men and women are being drafted in to fight with their allies on Europe's distant shores. Throughout America, sweethearts are saying their last goodbyes. Liz Stephens is already betrothed to budding US politician Dalton Harris, but when she meets GI Morgan McClain, she feels an instant and intense connection. But then he dances with her flirtatious best friend Betty and Liz is left feeling like just another soldier's fancy. Betty is mesmerized by Morgan and begs Liz to write letters for her to post to him overseas. Liz reluctantly agrees, in the end anxious to retain a connection to him. As the last searing days of World War II loom, a correspondence begins that will alter the course of their lives forever.

Reviews

'Letters from Home is an insightful portrait of the communion between the soldiers who fought for our country and those they left behind. A gripping and memorable story, it is a timeless lesson in love and loss and the moments that shape our lives.' Pamela Jenoff, author of The Kommandant's Girl
