On Poppy’s birthday, the year after her mother died, she’s given ten letters, each of her birthdays over ten years. The letters are from her mother – all the things she wasn’t able to say to her daughter before she died.
The premise was intriguing and I loved the idea of letters beyond the grave (a la Cecelia Ahern). I enjoyed the character of Poppy, although the letters from the mother fell a bit flat and weren’t as lyrically beautiful as I would have expected. Be that as it may, it’s a solid book and I enjoyed Poppy’s development.
