Synopsis

Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother's death, she leaves letters at her grave. It's the only way Juliet can cope.
Declan Murphy isn't the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he's trying to escape the demons of his past.
When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can't resist writing back. Soon, he's opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they're not actually strangers. When life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, sparks will fly as Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart.






Have you ever read a book that you knew after only the first few pages, the story and it's characters were going to merge with your heart strings and never really let go?  

Where you just had to finish the book  even though you wanted to read it ever so slowly to savor the reading experience of each page? 


Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer is all of the above and so. much. more!


I fell in awe of Letter's to the Lost's  book-cover the minute I came across it a few months ago. When I went to pick up a copy of this book, I was a bit nervous wondering if this story would live up to it's beautiful cover.   I need not have worried because the story far surpassed the cover!

It had me spellbound and captivated from the first page to the last. It's well written plot and engaging characters struck such a deep chord within me that even after finishing it, the story is still swirling around in my heart  and mind. 

Letters to the Lost with it's it's gripping emotions of grief, loss and love has become one of the best books I have had the pleasure to read this year!



5 Stars!
