It is interesting to consider how much we take our rights and freedoms for granted in this 21st centuryUpdate reread June 2020 This book continues to impress Seven years since I read it for the first time and many lesfic reads between my views on some of the characters have changed I found myself feeling compassion for Joan and less for Kate and Annie I listened to the audio book and with the exception of several repeated lines Lisa Larson does a fine job of bringing the characters and the past to lifeIn Letters Never Sent Moran pulls us into a different era where working women were looked down upon as inferior a time when back room abortionists were as common as cold water flats The love story between Kate and Annie begins much as their day at the Chicago World s Fair with much hope and promise and anticipation of great things to comeKate struggles with her desire to conform to her family and societies expectations while knowing that what she feels for Annie is real and true The author does a masterful job of conveying this uncertainty on Kate s part with the frustration felt by Annie This is not an easy book to read It makes one stop and consider how often the comments we make and the actions we take are weighed with that human desire to blend in and not be singled out I tend to read only contemporary romance but I found myself drawn to the story as it unfolds in the early decades of the 20th century The modern scenes with Joan were necessary but did not leave as big an impression on me and I kept racing through those scenes to return to the pastA bittersweet and thought provoking read A great debut for an author I will read again

There are some books that no matter how long ago you ve read them will stay in your memory as if it was just yesterday For me this is the case of Letters Never Sent by Sandra Moran I ve read it in 2014 and it made such an impact on me that if someone asked me to choose a single lesfic book to recommend it would be this oneThe story set in 1997 revolves around Joan who discovers some mysterious letters written in the 1950s by Katherine Joan s recently deceased mother These letters reveal a surprising side of Katherine that makes Joan wonder about her mother s past The novel takes the reader back and forth between the 1930s 1960s to the late 1990s It s a story of the older woman s forbidden love and the younger woman s search for her identity Letters Never Sent is those types of books that are hard to put into a category it s partly historical fiction lesfic general fiction drama mystery even feminist literature The novel goes smoothly from the early 1930s to 1997 though not in chronological order in very cleverly presented flashbacks that slowly reveal the story behind the puzzling lettersBoth Joan and her deceased mother Katherine are hard to like characters but the beauty of this novel is how as the story unfolds the reader understands their actions and why they act as they do Every single character is perfectly written as well as each dialogue and scene The fact that this is Ms Moran s debut makes this book even impressiveThis is not an easy read but it s hopeful and the twist at the end is epic It s a story of hardships and suffering but also of love and devotion Sandra Moran was a gifted writer and her too early passing is a devastating loss for lesbian and women s literature I had the audiobook in my player for a good while but I was hesitant to hear it fearing that somehow it could be a letdown Now I wished I listened to it earlierThe audiobook is narrated by Lisa Larsen who hasn t read much lesfic I have to say that her performance is fantastic and honours the beauty of the written text Ms Larsen s voices are all distinctive perfect for age and gender As I said before this is an emotional book with some very difficult scenes but Ms Larsen s performance is outstanding There are a couple of technical errors sentences that are repeated but I m happy to overlook them as the whole result is magnificent This is a fantastic lesbian debut audiobook I couldn t recommend it 5 starsTrigger warning short but explicit non consensual sex sceneDuration 13 hrs and 14 mins

Read Õ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Î Sandra Moran Letters Never Sent characters Ì 7 Sandra Moran Î 7 review Rinkets and a packet of sealed letters to a person identified only by a first initial Joan reads the unsent letters and discovers a woman completely different from the aloof and unyielding mother of her youth–a woman who had loved deeply and lost that love to circumstances beyond her control Now she just has to find the strength to use the healing power of empathy and forgiveness to live the life she’s always wanted to li. The book begins with Joan heading home to a small Kansas town to put her mother s affairs in order after her death There s a lingering bitterness from their shaky relationship which keeps her from being truly sorry about the loss In addition Joan s feeling lost in her own life a loveless marriage unfulfilled dreams Then while Joan s cleaning out her mother s house she finds letters that partially reveal a part of her mother s life that may shed light on Kate s cold demeanor towards her daughter The rest of the book splits between Joan s search for the truth and the unfolding of Kate s tale which complement and layer each other perfectlyThe writing is lyrical and intricate Good dialogue and secondary characters LNS also holds a deeper story about women and the pressures to conform to age old norms about being vulnerable to female targeted violence and the laws that govern only women s bodiesIn many ways we find out the aftermath right at the beginning so I felt sad even then but it s the hunger for details that drives the narrative with an ever pounding momentum Interwoven in this unraveling mystery is the beautifully passionate love story between Kate and Annie which though not explicit leaves you aching And as the story wound down to its inevitable conclusion all the pieces slipping into place I read on but my heart wasn t in it But it was okay because this wasn t just any old writer This was Sandra Moran who took us home to a heart soothing conclusion
