From the back cover:
Justine Nolan is a documentary film maker who lost her cherished grandmother, the only source of love and comfort in her life, a decade ago. Her own mother, Deborah, has always been distant, focusing on her career as an interior designer. When Justine inadvertently opens a letter addressed to her mother, she discovers that not only is her grandmother alive, but that Deborah has deliberately distanced her from the family for all these years. Justine's search for her grandmother takes her to Istanbul, where she begins to uncover secrets that stretch all the way back to World War II. As layers of deception peel away, Justine begins to understand a woman she never really knew, and she begins to ask questions about the true desires of her own heart.

This was another good book from one of my favourite authors. The story was a powerful one as secrets and mysteries were uncovered, and I was compelled to keep reading to find the answers.

I finished reading this book a couple of weeks ago but haven't had the time to journal. I really enjoyed this book. This book is a story inside a story. Justine learns about her grandmother's life, growing up during World War II, from a book she wrote and shares with Justine.

Journal Entry 8 by Aberpeter at Kirkland, Washington USA on Saturday, January 1, 2022
Letter from a Stranger unfolds in such a way which the reader is engaged and wants to know more. Why did Deborah lie to her children about their grandmother? What secrets does Gabriele have that have been buried for years and has caused the estrangement with her daughter. All the secrets slowly reveal themselves and keeps the reader engaged, wanting to know more.

While the storyline was engaging, I was not drawn to any of the characters. Everyone was too perfect. They all said the right thing at exactly the right time. They were all very understanding of each other and immediately connected with each other upon first meeting one another. None of the characters were real people and the relationships between them weren't genuine.
