THE LOST LETTERS of WILLIAM WOOLF by Helen Cullen & Giveaway



Lost letters have only one hope for survival… The Dead Letters Depot.

THE LOST LETTERS of WILLIAM WOOLF  (GraydonHouse) takes readers inside the walls of a converted tea factory. It’s there letter detectives work to solve mysteries of fate: missing zip codes, illegible handwriting, rain-smudged ink, lost address labels, torn packages, forgotten street names—these are the culprits behind missed birthdays, broken hearts, unheard confessions, pointless accusations, unpaid bills and unanswered prayers.

But when letter detective William Woolf discovers letters addressed simply to “My Great Love,” his work takes on new meaning. Written by a woman to the soul mate she hasn’met yet, the missives capture William’s heart in ways he didn’t know possible, and he must embark on a journey to solve what may be the most important mystery to come his way.

THE LOST LETTERS of WILLIAM WOOLF is an enchanting novel about the resilience of the human heart and the complex ideas we hold about love—and a passionate ode to the art of letter writing.

  1. Early in my life, I wrote lots of letters to my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, brothers, pen pals, and friends. I don’t write as much as I used to as I use the email, but I do write to some people that don’t like using the email such as my mother’s best friend who I keep in touch with and thank you letters.

  2. Wow, I used to write tons of letters when I was young adult (I have more than a thousand letters archived). I always enjoy physical letters because it is more emotional and I feel more connected. So far, I still write letters but less often. This book seems very good and thanks for the chance!

  3. My grandmother loved to write letters. When we moved away from home in early 70s, she and I wrote letters about every day or at least several times a week. I send cards to friends now, but not often enough. Book sounds very interesting.

  4. I write letters, send cards and have always been a letter writer. My late mother who wrote letters to all of her relatives and friends taught me to correspond. I enjoy writing letters since they are meaningful, beautiful, memorable and express the deepest thoughts and are unforgettable.

  5. It’s been a long time since I wrote an actual letter. I usually just email or text these days. But I have a dear friend who writes cards and notes all the time. She always writes a nice note in birthday cards and sends thank you notes for everything. If we get together for dinner I know that in 2 or 3 days I will receive a lovely note telling me how wonderful it was to see me or how great it was to catch up. We’ve been friends for almost 30 years and she’s always done this. I love receiving these notes and believe it is truly a lost art.
