The Lost Letters by Sarah Mitchell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Current time; In Canada sisters Martha and Elizabeth lose their beloved father. In tidying up his affairs they discover a file named catkins on his computer and they have a feeling that their father had an affair. He was in the midst of writing his memoirs when he passed but he had said that in order to finish his writing he was going to travel to England. He had already arranged his accommodation in England and one of his daughters, Martha, decided to take the trip and try to figure out her father's story.
We are taken back to 1940 during the war in London where our story begins with the subject of the evacuation of children to the safety of other countries and with occasional jumps to our current time.
I love stories set in London and England and this was historical fiction at its best. A wonderfully heartwarming and also heartbreaking story.
