The Lost Letters of William Woolf

We rated this book:


William Woolf works in the dead letters division. He must research undeliverable mail and see if he can work out how to get it where it needs to go. While working there, he comes across a series of letters written to “My Great Love” and signed “Winter.” The longing and the details conveyed in Winter’s letters stir up William’s stagnant heart. Trapped in an increasingly disappointing marriage, William begins to find solace in Winter’s letters, but at what cost?
The description on the cover makes it seem like the book will be about William trying to reunite wayward mail with its rightful recipient, but that is only a very tiny fraction of the book. It is actually the story of William and his wife Clare and how their once vibrant relationship has fallen into tension and disappointment. The book focuses mostly on the will-they-won’t-they storyline. It’s very skillfully written until the last two chapters, which leave the reader trying to figure out exactly what the outcome of the story is.
