Iona Grey: Letters to the Lost

Best book I have read for many years
This is the best book I have read for many years. It is a well written, heart-rending story about two people who met in WWII and lost touch with one another.

Stella Thorne and Dan Rosinki, an American bomber pilot, met by accident in London and immediately fell in love. Seventy years later Dan makes a final attempt to find his lost love by sending a letter to the house where they shared their short happiness. The letter is opened by a young girl now living in the house who is captivated by the story of the love affair. While she has problems of her own she resolves to help Dan to find Stella again.

This book was especially poignant to me as I was born in England during WWII and related to many of the places and things in my early life.

I would give this book 10/10 if I could. I echo the words of Santa Montefiore that this is "An epic story of love and loss that will break your heart".

Thanks to Simon & Schuster, Australia for a copy of this book for review.
