I found this a much more satisfying story than Maureen goes to Venice. In the early book, Maureen is just clumsy and somewhat obnoxious. This story gives her a lot more heart. Even though she is the one person you don’t want to spend too much time with, she only wants to do what is right and kind.
I loved the bit where she visits the ‘care home’. I could really picture the scene. I thought that was superb scene setting and writing.
As for the ‘letter’ of the title. Gulp.
