In her latest novel, Love Letters, Katie Fforde tells the story of Laura, a young woman in love with books, whose job in a book shop is coming to an end as the shop is closing. A literary agent convinces her to take on the job of organizing a literary festival at an English country estate, and a reluctant Laura is forced into situations that force her outside her comfort zone, allowing her to change and to grow in her confidence in her abilities and judgement. She is asked to recruit a reclusive, best-selling author to participate in the festival, and heads to Ireland to convince him to take part. She makes new friends, learns new skills and falls hopelessly in love with her favorite author. This is a sweet romance with engaging and witty characters, and the transformation of Laura is a pleasure to follow.
