    I thought this would be a lot better than it was It s just one step above your standard WWII romance novel, not particularly deep or insightful And adultery just isn t romantic to me, no matter how you package it I read half and skimmed the rest.Kim in the comment thread had a good suggestion Forget this novel just look at pictures of Skye instead Much better, I promise I thought this would be a lot better than it was It s just one step above your standard WWII romance novel, not particularly deep or insightful And adultery just isn t romantic to me, no matter how you package it I read half and skimmed the rest.Kim in the comment thread had a good suggestion Forget this novel just look at pictures of Skye instead Much better, I promise

    Letters from Skye is a sweet and simple book that ultimately disappointed me because the author seemed to believe that the cliched plot twists and insubstantial characters and setting could be saved by a charming concept I love the idea of a novel told in letters or diaries and just last week read and reviewed a great example of this type of novel Margaret Forster s Diary of an Ordinary Woman But to make that kind of novel succeed you have to have a strong narrative voice, a sense of a real Letters from Skye is a sweet and simple book that ultimately disappointed me because the author seemed to believe that the cliched plot twists and insubstantial characters and setting could be saved by a charming concept I love the idea of a novel told in letters or diaries and just last week read and reviewed a great example of this type of novel Margaret Forster s Diary of an Ordinary Woman But to make that kind of novel succeed you have to have a strong narrative voice, a sense of a real person setting events down in real time Unfortunately, all of the letter writers in Skye sound the same there s no differentiation in voice between an American college student and a Scottish poet in 1912 or a young woman and her boyfriend in the midst of WWII I ve read interviews with the author and she seemed to have done a great deal of research on the language of the time The words may have been correct but her diction and language structure was completely off the letters read like zippy emails back and forth, full of jokes and some fairly explicit conversations between a man and a woman in 1912 I suppose I m inclined to nit pick because I have all the letters between my great grandfather and his parents, covering a time period from the 1880s 1930s People wrote very differently back then and spoke about things in a farpoetic way than we do I didn t feel any of that in Skye I reached a point about halfway through the book when I realized it wasn t going to work for me I plowed through to finish it as I d received a review copy and kept myself occupied by wondering what the novel might have been like as a straight forward narrative with the key letters interspersed throughout I think this could have been a very good novel in the vein of a dual timeline, Kate Morton type story full of secrets The different settings the isolated Isle of Skye, college life in the U.S in the early part of the 20th century, the battlefields of France during the Great War and Blitz London What amazing settings what an opportunity for a sweeping novel showing the impact of war on families None of that comes through in Skye because of the limitations imposed by the letters I m sure many readers will not be bothered by these problems and can accept this as a sweet, generic love story Unfortunately, I feel as though I ve read this book many times and had hopes for somethingDisclaimer I received an advance e galley of this book for review

    This was an unusual book It took a little while to get into it and I found it to be a book which I didn t just read straight through I would move on a little and quite enjoy pondering on the thoughts and feelings of the people involved in it A quote on the book said Words on the page can drench the soul and after reading I quite agree with parts of this book The mention of the Isle of Skye first drew me to it as I have always wanted to visit there I do believe that often with a friendsh This was an unusual book It took a little while to get into it and I found it to be a book which I didn t just read straight through I would move on a little and quite enjoy pondering on the thoughts and feelings of the people involved in it A quote on the book said Words on the page can drench the soul and after reading I quite agree with parts of this book The mention of the Isle of Skye first drew me to it as I have always wanted to visit there I do believe that often with a friendship by mail or letter can encourage many to reveal their deepest feelings to each other For some reason a friendship of this nature can become really deep and fulfilling I recommend a book and the film called Green Journey by Jon Hassler for anyone who likes this sort of book Elspeth and David share private things they have never spoken of to another living soul They may have never met but they know each other Anyone like me who has had such a friendship will understand World War 1 finally interferes with their lives Elspeth is waiting, always anxious on Skye and David in the war as an ambulance driver I found it a beautiful book full of the richness and power of a love story with a difference I recommend it highly and will be reading it again for sure

    I loved everything about this audio book Loved, loved, loved.At first I was worried I wouldn t understand the Scottish speakers, but it was no problem and simply lovely It had a perfect calming effect on my currently frazzled nerves World Wars one and two provide a background, but the growing love between a Scottish poet on the Isle of Skye and her American fan from Illinois, told in letters, is front and center.Did I say I loved this

    I loved this beautiful, gentle love story spanning WWI and WW2.It all starts when Elspeth Dunn, a 24y old published poet living on Skye receives a fan letter from an American college boy, David Graham She is so surprised she writes back and they establish a friendship by letter gradually flowering into a romance However, there are complications Elspeth is recently married to her childhood friend and her husband soon enlists to fight in WWI The story is told not only through the letters of El I loved this beautiful, gentle love story spanning WWI and WW2.It all starts when Elspeth Dunn, a 24y old published poet living on Skye receives a fan letter from an American college boy, David Graham She is so surprised she writes back and they establish a friendship by letter gradually flowering into a romance However, there are complications Elspeth is recently married to her childhood friend and her husband soon enlists to fight in WWI The story is told not only through the letters of Elspeth and David but also through letters from Elspeth s daughter Margaret to her fiance, who is fighting in France in WW2 Margaret knows nothing of her mother s past and tries to unravel the story through her mothers letters and estranged relatives.I noticed that many reviewers felt that the voices of Margaret, David and Elspeth were not sufficiently different to be distinct I do agree somewhat with that but found that their characters were well enough built up through their writing that I had a clear mental image of them as individuals I would also agree that the style and tone of the letters was very modern and not in the style of letters written in 1916 but perhaps this could be partly attributed to Elspeth and David being such free spirits However, this did not detract from the story for me I also felt that the author could have madeof the wildness and romance of Skye but my imagination filled in the gaps so again this did not detract from a wonderful story Despite these small quibbles I enjoyed the book very much 5

    After the topic of depression and suicide in my last read I needed something lighter This is unashamedly a love story Elspeth, a published poet, receives a fan letter one day in 1912 that leads into correspondences with a young man that encompasses World War 1 Yes, you can see where it is heading from the start and that romance will develop, but it is about the letters and the journey that is the key, because this romance is not as simple as it first appears There are other letters in the na After the topic of depression and suicide in my last read I needed something lighter This is unashamedly a love story Elspeth, a published poet, receives a fan letter one day in 1912 that leads into correspondences with a young man that encompasses World War 1 Yes, you can see where it is heading from the start and that romance will develop, but it is about the letters and the journey that is the key, because this romance is not as simple as it first appears There are other letters in the narrative from Margaret to Paul and an uncle she has never met These are during 1940 and take in some of the events in World War 2 Margaret wants to know about her father and why her mother has kept so much of her life a secret It doesn t take a genius to figure out where this is heading Even when I didn t agree with the choices made by these characters at times somehow I got sucked in to reading this novel very quickly I did think the Isle of Skye itself could have been revealedthan it was I never really got a clear picture of it But, all in all I enjoyed this novel and really liked the cover Worth reading if you want something light and you might just find your emotions involved at times

    Some of the books and movies I love pull back the veil and reveal me to be a hopeless romantic, and this is going to be one of them I sat and read this cover to cover without a break, except for when the emotions got too intense and I flipped over to check my e mail The entire book, set during both world wars, is written in letters During the first world war, the letters are between a female poet living on the Isle of Skye and a slightly younger male fan of her work The second world war lett Some of the books and movies I love pull back the veil and reveal me to be a hopeless romantic, and this is going to be one of them I sat and read this cover to cover without a break, except for when the emotions got too intense and I flipped over to check my e mail The entire book, set during both world wars, is written in letters During the first world war, the letters are between a female poet living on the Isle of Skye and a slightly younger male fan of her work The second world war letters are betweenthan two people, trying to unravel the mystery of the first Maybe it s because I believe in love growing between strangers who have never met, or maybe it s because I have experienced the intimacy of letters from a far off place, but this book grabbed the breath out of me Add to it being set in the isles of Scotland with bits of Gaelic thrown in for good measure, and I m surprised I can even write coherently

    This was a quick book to read and it was a nice book Switches between 1912 and 1940, but this is not mainly a historical novel per say, though it does touch on the war, the ambulance drivers and the aircraft, it is without doubt a love story Wished the letters would have includedinformation about the Isle of Skye because I felt that this novel lacked depth When I first started there were times when I was bored and wished they would hurry up and write something half way interesting I gu This was a quick book to read and it was a nice book Switches between 1912 and 1940, but this is not mainly a historical novel per say, though it does touch on the war, the ambulance drivers and the aircraft, it is without doubt a love story Wished the letters would have includedinformation about the Isle of Skye because I felt that this novel lacked depth When I first started there were times when I was bored and wished they would hurry up and write something half way interesting I guess I just never really bonded with any of the characters The last fifty pages were the best and so once again this is a nice book, an easy book to read and I am sure other readers will find it ofinterest than I did ARC from publisher
