Rate this:
A sweeping debut love story told in letters, spanning the two world wars. Despite being married to a fisherman, twenty-six-year-old poet Elspeth Dunn has never left her native Isle of Skye, in the far northwest of Scotland. When a fan letter arrives one day from a college boy in Urbana, Illinois, the two strike up a correspondence that quickly becomes the centre of both of their lives. Swept up in the war effort, Davey soon volunteers as an ambulance driver for the French Army while Elspeth waits on her remote Scottish island, worried she'll lose her love before ever even seeing his face. A generation and another war later after Elspeth has mysteriously disappeared and letters start raining from their wainscoting in the aftermath of a bombing, Elspeth's daughter Margaret must figure out what happened to her family so long ago if she ever hopes to see her mother again.
