From the #1 Australian and New Zealand bestselling author, Lucinda Riley.
Lucinda Riley was born in 1965 in Ireland, and after an early career as an actress in film, theatre and television, wrote her first book aged twenty-four. Her books have been translated into thirty-seven languages and continue to strike an emotional chord with all cultures around the world. The Seven Sisters series specifically has become a global phenomenon, creating its own genre, and there are plans to create a seven-season TV series. Her books have been nominated for numerous awards, including the Italian Bancarella prize, The Lovely Books award in Germany, and the Romantic Novel of the Year award. In 2020 she received the Dutch Platinum award for sales over 300,000 copies for a single novel in one year - an award last won by J K Rowling for Harry Potter. In collaboration with her son Harry Whittaker, she also devised a series of books for children called 'The Guardian Angels' series, based on stories told to her children whenever they were facing a challenging situation. Harry then wrote the books, and they are now being published internationally. Though she brought up her four children mostly in Norfolk in England, in 2015 she fulfilled her dream of buying a remote farmhouse in West Cork, Ireland, which she always felt was her spiritual home, and indeed this was where her last five books were written. Lucinda was diagnosed with cancer in 2017 and died on June 11th 2021, surrounded by her family.

'Sit back and enjoy all the action, adventure, romance, danger and controversy in what for me was an extraordinary and deeply satisfying read . . . without question Lucinda Riley is my favourite author' * Shaz's Book Blog *
Enticed by the synopsis, I found myself hooked from the very first chapter. The storytelling is compelling and the story gripping, leaving the reader eager to turn the page. As expected with the genre, The Love Letter delivers more than its fair share of twists and turns, and Lucinda Riley has skilfully woven little hints and clues into the narrative along the way for the curious reader to try to piece together the puzzle themselves. * Emma R - blog *
