A secret romance was just the start of the story…
Tucked into a crook of the Norfolk coast lies Nelson’s Bar – an idyllic village where time seems to stand still. Maddy Cracey has called this beautiful spot home all her life, as had her husband Adey – until an epic row sent him storming out into a blizzard, with no sign of him since that fateful night.
Six years on, and Maddy’s life in the village has settled into a gentle pattern with her young daughter and Great Aunt Ruthie. However, when handsome stranger Raff turns up with a handful of long-forgotten love letters, their quiet life is upended as family secrets from the past are unearthed.
As Raff and Maddy get to know each other, they grow closer and a love story of their own seems inevitable. But when Maddy receives a mysterious message, she can’t help but wonder whether her own past is as distant as she’d thought it was…
Why we Loved It
The Christmas Love Letters is a deeply satisfying Christmas read.
Sue’s descriptions of the windswept Norfolk coast in the snow leading up to Christmas are atmospheric and evocative.
We loved the introduction of the love letters from the past and the creative and sensitive way she develops each of the characters and the relationships between them.
Make the hot chocolate, add the marshmallows, settle back in your most comfortable chair and enjoy this heartwarming, romantic festive treat!
One of our Favourite Christmas reads. Highly Recommended!
