Starting over can be hard to do… So when mum of two, Beth moves out of her beloved marital home and into an unloved and unkempt cottage, she can’t help but feel demoralised. Faced with months of DIY and dust, her children Jacob and Olivia aren’t impressed either. But when Beth finds a box of letters while she’s clearing out the children’s room, things start to look up. The correspondence is decades old, between agony aunt, Evelyn, and those in need of solace. Intrigued, the letters kept safe all these years, Beth can’t resist reading them, and as the wisdom and kindness falls off the pages, Beth feels she has a friend and champion in this woman she has never met.
Good advice doesn’t age, and as life begins to look brighter, Beth wonders if she could track down Evelyn and thank her. But everything is not as it seems. And now Beth is determined to bring peace to Evelyn as she has to her.
A spell-binding, heart-warming story of friendship, love and being brave enough to be yourself.
