Letter from a Stranger

Barbara Bradford

Justine Nolan is a documentary filmmaker who lost her cherished grandmother a decade ago--the only source of love and comfort in her life. Her own mother, Deborah, has always been distant, focusing on her career as an interior designer. But when Justine inadvertently opens a letter addressed to her mother, she discovers that not only is her grandmother alive, but that Deborah has deliberately distanced her from the family for all these years. Justine's search for her grandmother takes her to Istanbul, where she begins to uncover secrets that stretch all the way back to World War II. As layers of deception peel away, Justine begins to understand a woman she never really knew...and she begins to ask questions about the true desires of her own heart.

Review: Letter from a Stranger

User Review  - Susan - Goodreads

Very poorly written, obviously by a computer program. Plot is predictable, characters disappear with little explanation. This could have been a very good book if properly done. Read full review

Review: Letter from a Stranger

User Review  - Goodreads

I am a bit embarrassed to admit I read this book and more astonished that the author has written 26 other books and received the OBE. While the story is original in many ways the prose is terrible. Obviously I am not on the same planet as many other people who seem love this type of writing. Read full review
