✪ Letters To My Yesterday ✪ Karyn Sepulveda ✪

For fans of Liane Moriarty and Fiona Higgins comes a heartwarming story of friendship, love, loss, family – and the enduring strength of women.

At the age of ninety-two, Marie runs a much-loved café from the house her single mother Rose built in the 1920s. A warm and welcoming refuge for many, Marie is determined not to let a downward spiral in her health get in the way of her busy life helping others.

Dee, the highly respected principal of a local public school, is facing the biggest challenge of her career-launching an inter-faith curriculum to an unwelcoming school community. But will her own background as a Lebanese Muslim immigrant work against her?

Isla, the young marketing guru tasked with helping Dee launch the campaign, has suffered the greatest loss of all, and is haunted by a devastating secret from her past.

Letters to My Yesterday is a moving and tender portrayal of female strength, hardship and friendship, and that beautiful moment when someone comes into your life at just the right moment, and changes it forever.

What a beautiful debut novel from Karyn Sepulveda.  I was intrigued by the blurb of Letters To My Yesterday, and I have been quietly devouring this book in my lunch breaks for the past couple of weeks, wishing I had a longer break ever day.

I felt that I was part of the lives off all the strong women in this story.  From 1920's to today, this story tells the lives of some seriously strong women. I was particularly drawn to the women of today, who have nothing in common but come together and form wonderful friendships through.

Letters To My Yesterday had a bit of everything.  From heartache and sorrow to love and laughter, these amazing ladies have been through it all.

There is something that I could relate to about each of these women. And I was full of admiration for each and every one of them.

I loved how they built each other up.  It is sad that so many women would rather tear someone down than lift them up.  These women are each other's biggest cheerleaders, and I admire them for that.

I wanted more.  No, I need more!

I can't wait to see what Ms Sepulveda brings us next.
