review Letters Never Sent

Letters Never SentThe marriage proposal of a local boy to live on her own and work at the Sears Roebuck glove counter in Chicago There she meets Annie a bold outspoken feminist who challenges Katherine’s idea of who she thinks she is and what she thinks she wants in lifeIn 1997 Katherine’s daughter Joan travels to Lawrence Kansas to clean out her estranged mother’s house Hidden away in an old suitcase she finds a wooden box containing t. There are some books that no matter how long ago you’ve read them will stay in your memory as if it was just yesterday For me this is the case of ‘Letters Never Sent’ by Sandra Moran I’ve read it in 2014 and it made such an impact on me that if someone asked me to choose a single lesfic book to recommend it would be this oneThe story – set in 1997 – revolves around Joan who discovers some mysterious letters written in the 1950s by Katherine Joan’s recently deceased mother These letters reveal a surprising side of Katherine that makes Joan wonder about her mother’s past The novel takes the reader back and forth between the 1930s 1960s to the late 1990s It’s a story of the older woman’s forbidden love and the younger woman’s search for her identity‘Letters Never Sent’ is those types of books that are hard to put into a category it’s partly historical fiction lesfic general fiction drama mystery even feminist literature The novel goes smoothly from the early 1930s to 1997 though not in chronological order in very cleverly presented flashbacks that slowly reveal the story behind the puzzling lettersBoth Joan and her deceased mother Katherine are hard to like characters but the beauty of this novel is how as the story unfolds the reader understands their actions and why they act as they do Every single character is perfectly written as well as each dialogue and scene The fact that this is Ms Moran’s debut makes this book even impressiveThis is not an easy read but it’s hopeful and the twist at the end is epic It’s a story of hardships and suffering but also of love and devotion Sandra Moran was a gifted writer and her too early passing is a devastating loss for lesbian and women’s literature I had the audiobook in my player for a good while but I was hesitant to hear it fearing that somehow it could be a letdown Now I wished I listened to it earlierThe audiobook is narrated by Lisa Larsen who hasn’t read much lesfic I have to say that her performance is fantastic and honours the beauty of the written text Ms Larsen’s voices are all distinctive perfect for age and gender As I said before this is an emotional book with some very difficult scenes but Ms Larsen’s performance is outstanding There are a couple of technical errors sentences that are repeated but I’m happy to overlook them as the whole result is magnificent This is a fantastic lesbian debut audiobook I couldn’t recommend it 5 starsTrigger warning short but explicit non consensual sex sceneDuration 13 hrs and 14 mins
