Not sure where I picked this up, I suspect it was a kindle freebie In any case, having recently started wandering around in historical romancelandia with somewhat hit and miss results , and since it had such rave reviews, I gave it a read Good grief do I regret that This book opens with a letter from a villain clearly twirling his mustache and cackling to himself in glee to the supposed hero, detailing a decade of abuse heaped upon the woman the hero was to have married and her child It does not [...]
I heard about this book from Grace Burrowes, and would have gotten it on her word alone, but I thought to sample a couple of paragraphs from , just to get a feel of the story What I got was a kick in my solar plexus as the novel opens up with the letter in question.Most stories are structured in three parts, with a climax at the end This story had its climax right at front, and with it made you want to demand to know what in the hell happened and how the hell is our hero going to make it all rig [...]

From the synopsis, I expected a book that was deeper and heart felt than the average regency romance, but I had not expected one that was filled with such warmth, humanity, realism, and humor Great story, great characters, wish I could give it a 6th star just for Peggy I so crazy loved this book that I don t even know how to begin to explain why, so I am glad there are enough other well written 5 star reviews to say see them This is also the kind of book that will make the next few books I read [...]

I got The Letter as a gift Author, Sandra Owens s debut book And the first regency I ve read by her All I can say is WOW Talk about emotional I cried than once for Diana Poor Diana I can t imagine what she went through And the hero, Michael Le Sigh I absolutely adored his humor This guy is so fun I think he probably has the best humor of any book hero I have yet to read I loved how kind, patient and understanding he was with Diana I adored every time he spoke French and called her, Myana So sex [...]
Gather all the sappy romancia cliches you can imagine and mutliply that by 100 and you ll still fall short of doing justice to the ridiculousness of this book No sense or rather an active anti historical anti sense of time or place, of class and gender relations not even a smidgen of a smidgen, just to get verisimilitude going Nothing at all A bland, awfully, excruciatingly and unbearably intrusive contemporary voice or should that be shrill for its contemporary waffle projected upon an empty wa [...]
Wow, what a way to gather all the angsty, soup operish elements together and put it in the middle of the Regency time story without any sense of place, history, man woman, lord servant relationships of the times Based on all these positive reviews, I thought this would be me my kind of book second chance romance, abused heroine overcoming her past, etc Unfortunately, the book was another wallpaper historical Well, another author to avoid.
Wow.Just Freaking Wow.I do not know if I can praise this book highly enough I do not remember the last time a book was able to inspire so many emotions from me grief, rage, happiness And triumph Yes, this is a romance novel, but it is so much It is the story of the ability of the human spirit being able to climb from hell to heaven, for good to triumph over evil Diana was amazing To have been brutalized so thoroughly and still have the will to live, and not just live, but to live joyfully is in [...]
Let s start with why the 4 stars and not 5 Let me first clarify that when I rate a book.I rate it in comparison to others of the same genres unfair to pit a regency romance like this against Tolstoy s War and Peace, that being said I rated this book 4 stars because of the way it began The book started too strategically for my taste The author knew what would grab the audience s attention instantly and planned her moves accordingly This was a smart move for a new author.but felt too cold for a ro [...]
I loved this book, from the first page where you read the vile letter sent from the now deceased Baron til the HEA ending I would not change a page of this book, I cried as the story unfolded of the unimaginable abuse the heroine has suffered and again when the hero discovers each and every sin that was committed against her You watch her turn from the horrifically battered widow back into the woman he fell in love with and watch the hero fall in love with her son there were so many special mome [...]
OMG This one reminded me of Downton Abby, my favorite show All of these Earl s, Barron s, Ladies and Duchess.Wonderful The book started with The Letter , which I thought was Brilliant What a shocking scandal for 1814 This is a story about the age old tale of jealousy but the lengths that one man took to ruin another s life was unbelievable Michael and Diana had everything and were about to be married when Leo, Michael s first cousin, played the ultimate trick on the whole family Leo ended up mar [...]

Wonderful, Wonderful Read Review to come soon From the first paragraph of The Letter you are drawn and cannot put it down I spent a lovely summer Sunday reading this compelling historical romance.The story opens with a powerful letter to Michael Jeffres, Earl of Daventry from his deceased cousin Leo This is not a letter from the grave expressing how much Leo will miss his cousin but a letter expressing triumph as he took the one woman who Michael ever loved and destroyed her beyond measure, for [...]
This book started out really strong I really loved the first half where Michael and Diana found out what happened all those years ago Maybe I should have finished the book right away but I lost interest after it became evident that Michael pretty much already decided what he was going to do with Diana He wanted to marry her, of course, to make up for lost times And Diana naturally had her reservations about just everything Not that she did not love Michael, just after what she had been through, [...]
Such a great story that 5 stars doesn t seem like enough A letter filled with hate but truth sent from a vicious cousin to the Earl of Daventry sets the stage for this amazing journey of regret, fear, mistrust, doubt, patience, healing and love All of these emotions are expertly crafted so I experienced them along with Michael, Earl of Daventry and Lady Diana Brantley The harm done by the horrible cousin to Michael and Diana seems too devastating and the healing insurmountable But, what they fel [...]
The Letter is a fantastically addictive Regency romance It s a wonderful story that begins with a letter sent from beyond the grave to turn the worlds of both Michael and Diana upside down The undercurrents of trauma and recovery is wonderfully woven within the story of a love regained Michael and Diana are the quintessential couple She must regain who she once was after a horrifically abusive marriage that, if it weren t for the trickery of Michael s cousin Leo, she wouldn t ever have been in I [...]
Clever start with the letter coming to Michael from his cousin after the cousin died It is a nasty letter in which Michael learns how the cousin managed to steal Michael s fiancee from him ten years ago This prompts Michael to find his former fiance, Diana, and the son that could be Michael s As the story continues we learn the horrors Diana faced at the hand of the evil cousin It is heartbreaking to read what she went through And I love that she doesn t just fall for Michael and that erases all [...]
The early pages of this novel had me imagining what it would be like to have my future set before me a happy, peaceful one only to have it ripped away by a madman who was bent on destroying my body, heart and soul.This is what happened to Diana, who was set to marry Michael two souls who loved each other deeply with a love that would transcend time and circumstance After numerous years, the two came face to face because of a letter left behind, a letter written by a madman but there were scars f [...]
This was one emotional read The story definitely pulls at your heart strings and weaves in so many emotions from sadness, regret, betrayal, forgiveness, tenderness and joy to provide a bitter sweet love story.I liked the fact that the story began with the letter and stayed in the present, leaving you to learn the details of the past from conversations and Diana s memories I was surprised that Diana did not feel anger about what happened to her and towards Michael I was expecting her to be angr [...]
