LETTER FROM A STRANGER
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
This novel provides an excellent personal view of historical events and will appeal to the empathetic nature of readers. However, the writing is dry and stoic. Even the most emotional scenes are written in clinical terms and are devoid of emotion.
Justine Nolan has just discovered that her grandmother is alive and well, though her mother told her otherwise. She travels to Istanbul and finds her grandmother and her close friend Anita. Justine’s extended trip to Europe reconnects her with her grandmother and leads her on a journey to discover the events that led to her disappearance. (ST. MARTIN’S, Apr., 432 pp., $27.99)
