Letters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole
She is astounded someone actually read one of her books, and starts a correspondence with David Graham. This correspondence lasts until 1917 when one of David's war-time friends writes her that he has died in France. This is a lovely, loving book. Watching the love grow in these letters from these people who take years to actually meet each other and to feel the light-years away from the world that the Island of Skye is, is a story you just want to keep on reading, but darn, it ends on page 290!
I've just found out that my great-grandparents emigrated from Skye to Nova Scotia, and that is why I picked up the book -- so glad I did - it's a gem.
