Letters Never Sent is the debut novel by Sandra Moran and I have to say I’m impressed I’m sure I will read from this authorSet in 1997 we accompany Joan as she discovered the real story about her mother Katherine After her mother's death she had to clean out her house and belongings Thereby she finds a wooden box with a few sealed letters her mother had written in the 1950s to a person just called A The letters revealed just enough to made Joan curious enough to try to find out about her alienated mother Maybe her mother's elderly neighbor Mrs Yoccum could helpThis story has me captured from the first page I really loved the complex structure of the story It’s told on three different levels first in the letters second during Katherine’s time in Chicago between 1931 and the late ’50s and third with Joan in 1997 The author intertwined the three threads perfectly The characters are very well developed and I very much loved the writing style The author did a very good job of laying out how difficult the situation was and how high the pressure and expectations from families have been for their children God forbid me to be a lesbian How much bravery it needed to stand up for being your real self and do what you like to do The uncertainty Katherine felt and the struggles she went through were tangible And on the other side the frustration Annie had felt was real and I felt so sad for her I connected really fast with Annie but couldn’t get really warm with Katherine but it does no harm to the story I rooted for the two of them to finally find their happy EndIt isn’t an easy read but it goes straight to your heartMy rating 45 stars for this beautiful written debut novel

Oh this book made me happy and it was exactly what I needed yesterday I know most of you have read this already so I'll keep my review shortIt's not perfect but that really doesn't matter The only thing that bothered me somewhat is that the daughter's character Joan wouldn't have had a reason to know about the flashbacks in the beginning when they started so the placement felt off but whatever It's explained later somewhat but still bothered me a bit when the flashbacks first started Again it doesn't really matter though because this story is compelling beautifully told and it grabbed my attention and never let go I have to admit that for some reason I actually saw the ending coming which should have bothered me too since I hate being able to tell what's coming but it didn't matter to me at all in this on either Moran was such a lyrical writer and I feel lucky to have gotten to enjoy this one as much as I didThis is a beautiful book that you need to pick up and read if you haven't already It's going on my favorites shelf and I'll be back for a re read in the future 45 stars

Letters Never SentRinkets and a packet of sealed letters to a person identified only by a first initial Joan reads the unsent letters and discovers a woman completely different from the aloof and unyielding mother of her youth–a woman who had loved deeply and lost that love to circumstances beyond her control Now she just has to find the strength to use the healing power of empathy and forgiveness to live the life she’s always wanted to li. The book begins with Joan heading home to a small Kansas town to put her mother’s affairs in order after her death There’s a lingering bitterness from their shaky relationship which keeps her from being truly sorry about the loss In addition Joan’s feeling lost in her own life a loveless marriage unfulfilled dreams Then while Joan’s cleaning out her mother’s house she finds letters that partially reveal a part of her mother’s life that may shed light on Kate’s cold demeanor towards her daughter The rest of the book splits between Joan’s search for the truth and the unfolding of Kate’s tale which complement and layer each other perfectlyThe writing is lyrical and intricate Good dialogue and secondary characters LNS also holds a deeper story about women and the pressures to conform to age old “norms” about being vulnerable to female targeted violence and the laws that govern only women’s bodiesIn many ways we find out the aftermath right at the beginning so I felt sad even then but it’s the hunger for details that drives the narrative with an ever pounding momentum Interwoven in this unraveling mystery is the beautifully passionate love story between Kate and Annie which though not explicit leaves you aching And as the story wound down to its inevitable conclusion all the pieces slipping into place I read on but my heart wasn’t in it But it was okay because this wasn’t just any old writer This was Sandra Moran who took us home to a heart soothing conclusion
