J.P. Monninger has crafted an exquisite novel in Seven Letters. The author has a gift for making readers feel that they are on a journey with the characters. Places including Ireland and Italy come to vivid life in the novel. In addition, there is a good history lesson on the Blasket Islands in the book. I want to visit there and know more about the people who once lived on the islands.
The main characters in the novel are Ozzie, a damaged war vet and Kate, a professor at Dartmouth College. Their meeting, their relationship, their pasts all are beautifully described. The reader roots for them and wishes for their hard earned happiness…but can it be?
I highly recommend this lush beautiful novel. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the wonderful read in exchange for an honest review.
