(2 Ratings)
Price: $3.00
The first volume of 10 years of love letters written by two young people from 1945 onwards and found after they died. Separated for months on end, their letters were the only way of maintaining a relationship through times of joy and grief. sometimes gossipy, sometimes passionate, sometimes full of practicalities, always intense, they reveal the life of an aspiring couple during and after World War Two, in pre-independence India, Oxford and Sudan. They offer a glimpse of a world now gone and an insight into the preoccupations of that era. Between the lines lie clues to secrets which never emerged during their lifetime. Open the box and discover the flame which, at a distance, kept a difficult relationship alive.

    Very interesting batch of letters. The EPUB could benefit from some professional editing however as the whole book is badly let down by some poor formatting with little thought given to it and on the whole an amateur approach.

    Fascinating insight into a world and relationship of the past I found this book fascinating and I really enjoyed it and now want to know what happened next! It was a great window into an world of the past and although the letters are, of course, focused on their relationship I found it gave me an interesting view of their world at that time just after the war. Even the words they used was such a revelation as to their attitudes to their place in life, the concerns they had about fitting into the life in the Sudan were a reminder of a time now gone and how things have truly changed (for the better) in the last 60 odd years. What was also fascinating was the story between the lines, what was not said or simply hinted at, an insight into a relationship and how people were at that time. This book was one to be savoured and as I got to know the two people as I read the book I wanted to know their story more.
