Be destined for him But what about his troubled marriageWilliam must follow the clues in Winter's letters to solve the mystery of his own heartAs heard on BBC Radio The Steve Wright Show 'An enchanting contribution to the popular new trend of up lit such as Gail Honeyman's Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine' Irish Times'Captivates William has what seems to be the best job in the world Honest yet lyrical Cullen's characters are drawn with sympathy Lose yourself' The Scotsman Letter writing is a sadly a dying art nowadays and one that I have to admit to missing terribly although my dad still very much enjoys writing letters to his great grandchildren The look of excitement in their eyes when a letter addressed to them lands on the doormat is a joy to behold and always makes me wish there were handwritten letters sent to us So I was immediately attracted to the stunning cover of The Lost Letters of William Woolf and what a beautifully constructed story lies behind that sumptuous artworkThe characters of William and his wife Claire are exuisitely drawn and as their relationship is gradually unveiled we slowly become aware of the problems that lie between them A lack of communication has caused their marriage to become stale a union that fulfils neither of their dreams of desires When William reads letters addressed to My Great Love whilst working as a letter detective at the Dead Letter Depot he becomes fascinated by the mysterious Willow He wonders if he could be the soulmate she seeks and decides to use the clues in her letter to track her downOne of my favourite parts of the book was reading the letters written by other senders that arrived at the depot Their stories of love loss and hope gave an insight into the human desire to communicate emotions via the written word Even the short letters were perfectly pitched to achieve maximum impact And I loved the idea that there was someone as sensitive as William reading them taking ownership and desperately wanting them to be delivered to their rightful placeThis is a uniuely crafted and beautifully expressed tale of a couple who need to find themselves again before they can find each other and of a lost art that needs to be encouraged before it disappears forever I left a little piece of my heart in this book and possibly a tear stain or two on the final page

London's Dead Letters Depot William Woolf unites lost mail with its intended recipient White mice a miniature grandfather clock and a full suit of armour are among the unusual items lost then found thanks to William's detective workBut when he discovers a series of letters addressed only to 'My Great Love' everything changes Written by Winter to a soulmate she hasn't yet met her heartfelt words stir William in ways he Lost Letters of PDFEPUB #231 has long forgotten Could they William works as a letter detective in the Dead Letters Depot in East London Each day he deals with letters with missing postcodes letters wrongly addressed writing that is illegible and various letters and parcels with no return address As a young man it is not what he saw himself doing When he first met Clare he had great plans Over the years things had changed When William discovers letters in dark blue envelopes with silver writing he is intrigued when they begin to My Great Love The letters are written by a woman called Winter to a man she has never met but feels is the soulmate she is destined hopefully to meet one day Fascinated William cannot but help the letters were meant for him to find He resolves to find Winter Meanwhile in his marriage with Clare they are both aware that there is an increasing chasm between themIt s a book that is not going to appeal to everyone but I think I was just in the mood for something a little bit whimsical It still manages though to deal in a realistic way with a love that started off so promisingly and has dwindled over the years of marriage into the mundane I enjoyed learning about William and Clare their past and the slow slide into something neither of them ever envisaged I liked reading the letters from Winter and some of the other letters that arrive at the Dead Letter Office I especially liked the story and package with the medal I enjoyed uirky secondary characters that pop up too Really the story is about communications and what happens when people fail to communicate Or when they put aside their dreams This is a book where the ending is not going to please everyone It might even annoy some people But I liked it I felt it fitted with the rest of the story I enjoyed this engaging read Yes you need to suspend disbelief but a good writer can convince me to do that This is a debut novel I d be very keen to read another book by this author
