God, how I loved this. It’s a gentle meander of a book in which two people in later life, who’ve never met, strike up a correspondence. Their letters weave back and forth over the months, and as time passes and they gradually reveal more and more of themselves, their relationship deepens. It’s a debut novel, which is astonishing, as I found it so accomplished. I stumbled across it as a Modern Mrs Darcy book club pick, and I’m so very glad I did. Highly recommended as a cozy, sofa read.
