review

Hi Everyone! 

Today I have a review for The Missing Letters of Mrs Bright. What a wonderful story this is. 

The Blurb

41JvpPbyBPL._SY346_Sometimes it takes losing something to see where you truly belong.

For the past twenty-nine years, Kay Bright’s days have had a familiar rhythm: she works in her husband’s stationery shop hoping to finally sell the legendary gold pen, cooks for her family, tries to remember to practice yoga, and every other month she writes to her best friend, Ursula. Kay could set her calendar by their letters: her heart lifts when the blue airmail envelope, addressed in Ursula’s slanting handwriting, falls gently onto the mat.

But now Ursula has stopped writing and everything is a little bit worse.

Ursula is the only one who knows Kay’s deepest secret, something that happened decades ago that could tear Kay’s life apart today. She has always been the person Kay relies on.

Worried, Kay gets out her shoebox of Ursula’s letters and as she reads, her unease starts to grow. And then at ten o’clock in the morning, Kay walks out of her yellow front door with just a rucksack, leaving her wedding ring on the table…

This emotional and heart-warming novel is for anyone who knows it’s never too late to look for happiness. Fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely FineA Man Called Ove and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry will fall in love with this feel-good and moving story that shows you that the best friendships truly last forever.

Author Bio
Beth-Miller-500I have been told that I write like a tall blonde, so that’s how I’d like you to picture me.

I’ve published three novels, with one more about to be born, in January 2020. I’ve also published two non-fiction books. I work as a book coach and creative writing tutor.

Before writing books, I did a lot of different jobs. I worked in schools, shops, offices, hospitals, students’ unions, basements, from home, in my car, and up a tree. OK, not up a tree. I’ve been a sexual health trainer, a journalist, a psychology lecturer, a PhD student, a lousy alcohol counsellor, and an inept audio-typist. I sold pens, bread, and condoms. Not in the same shop. I taught parents how to tell if their teenagers are taking drugs (clue: they act like teenagers), and taught teenagers how to put on condoms (clue: there won’t really be a cucumber). I taught rabbis how to tell if their teenagers are druggedly putting condoms on cucumbers.

Throughout this, I always wrote, and always drank a lot of tea. I’m now pretty much unbeatable at drinking tea.

My Review
I must admit this is the first review I have written in quite some time. But what a book to review for my first this year! I loved it, it is a book about self-discovery, knowing your worth and what you mean to others. This is my also the first book I have read in 2020 and this has really set the bar high for what the year needs to bring.
Kay Bright, is a wonderful character and I love her, I’d love to be her! Just get up and go travelling one day whilst you still can. Why the hell not, is what I say!?
Kay’s daughter Stella, she was such a character, I’m not really one for glittery and girly, but I loved Stella’s nickname that was given to her by her parents. Let me say she really did not deserve what happened to her, but she rose above and beyond and I was quite proud of her.
The guys are just amazing, bar one… you’ll find out who that is 😉 I’m so pleased Kay’s husband managed to find companionship, even though it was so soon after the break-up.
Obviously I don’t want to give too much away as it would be so much better to read it. But this really is a beautiful read. I can’t stress enough how much you need to read this. I’m definitely going to keep an eye pout for more Beth Miller in the future.
