Letters from Skye; Jessica Brockmole

Letters from SkyeLetters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Oh look: another epistolary novel. And one set during World War I... and World War II. And there are family secrets!

The only reason this got a three star review was because I was feeling generous - it's really a 2.5 and I rounded up. The secrets were not era-dependent, so the setting didn't really work for me. The writing was good and ill-served by the conceit of several sets of letters, and the author occasionally felt compelled to tell rather that knowing that the letters would show.
