A Letter for Maureen by Jonathan Hill

This is the second Maureen book.  This time Maureen is at home and at the book club meetings at the local library.  

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.
