Letters from Skye, Jessica Brockmole, book reviewIn March 1912 David Graham is a University student in Urbana, Illinois. He’s just read a book of poetry by Elspeth Dunn, who lives on Scotland’s Isle of Skye. Impressed, he decides to write to her, and thereby begins a correspondence that will change both their lives. Just over 28 years later, Margaret’s best friend is about to join the war as a RAF fighter pilot, when she realizes she’s in love with him, as much as he is in love with her. When a bomb rips through the wall of her mother’s Edinburgh house, out spills piles of letters her mother has been keeping since before the Great War. The next morning, her mother and the letters are gone – except for the one yellowed page Margaret picked up.
