which I loved So excitedCurrently reading Read Both like NOW Now available in Paperback 982016 I was looking for a book with a lighter vibe after a period of reading intense crime novels I came across The Letter on and thought I give it a whirl I m so glad I Dangerously in Love didThis is both a heart warming novel and one tinged with sadn The Letter is a historical romance that spans across three generations and like most love stories it tells about love found and love lostEven though this subject is often predictable with its indiscriminate apportioning of pain and heartachestill each story has its own uniue experiencesthis is one such storyIt s not a fluffy read it s a story about two women a generation apart who s struggles have a lot in common and how time and circumstance will conspire to bridge the gap between them to uncover their stories and bring some much overdue healingThis story was compelling I thought in that it goes into theetails of the lives of those involved and gave good BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) depictions of the types of bias and misguided judgements of the time along with a clear sense of the struggles brought about by the first world war How these individuals wereirectly and indirectly affected and how as individuals they copedThe choices they made were not always the preferred choices mostly they were borne out of necessity ue to the circumstances of that eraAlthough it follows a remarkably incredible pattern of events I found this story mesmerizing as each piece of a puzzle fell into place to build on a much bigger storyIf you can somewhat suspend belief and read this at face value it is uite a clever and satisfying readWe learn that even the smallest of oversights now can sometimes count in the larger scheme of things enabling the possibility of a later action which can have eually profound effectsI really enjoyed this read 4 sMany thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for my copy to
