This week, Elena Graf explains why Dead Letters From Paradise is a must read.
Elena first read this book on the recommendation of a friend, and they were right! The Southern setting of this work of historical fiction is a favorite for Elena, though she might have grabbed it any way just based on the blurb or on the author’s stellar reputation. Elena tells us that as she is prioritizing quality over quantity in her reading lists, Ann is one of those truly talented authors she will always make time to read.
Let’s hear more from Elena about why Dead Letters From Paradise is a must read:
I read a comment by the author that she wished her mother had lived to read this book. She also saw it as an example of “Southern fiction” and it’s very well done as such. I identified with the spunky young girl character, having been about her age during the time period of the novel. Ann is a phenomenally talented wordsmith. Her books never disappoint.
