Once in a while a book comes along that captures your heart, and this one charmed me from the first page. William Woolf works in the Dead Letters Depot, helping lost post get home to grateful recipients. His once-perfect love for his wife Claire has also gone astray, and when his work brings him a series of romantic letters addressed only to ‘My Great Love’, his life begins to change. An enchanting and bittersweet exploration of what love really means.
