Publisher's Summary

Three women, united by love and kinship, struggle to conform to the social norms of the times in which they live.

In 1931 Katherine Henderson leaves behind her small town in Kansas and the marriage proposal of a local boy to live on her own and work at the Sears & Roebuck glove counter in Chicago. There she meets Annie - a bold, outspoken feminist who challenges Katherine's idea of who she thinks she is and what she thinks she wants in life.

In 1997 Katherine's daughter, Joan, travels to Lawrence, Kansas, to clean out her estranged mother's house. Hidden away in an old suitcase, she finds a wooden box containing trinkets and a packet of sealed letters to a person identified only by a first initial.

Joan reads the unsent letters and discovers a woman completely different from the aloof and unyielding mother of her youth - a woman who had loved deeply and lost that love to circumstances beyond her control. Now she just has to find the strength to use the healing power of empathy and forgiveness to live the life she's always wanted to live.

    "Wonderful"

    I had read the book and loved it. I thought the audio was wonderful too. I found myself looking for excuse to take a drive or do yard work. Anything to slip on my ear buds and get back to the story.

    "Beautifully written story of love and friendship."

    I throughly enjoyed this story of love and friendship. The mystery behind Catherine and Annie's love affair was especially exciting! I would love to read a "prequel" about Annie.

    "Wonderful tale through time."

    I love the story. The characters connections and the way the storyline moves through time. I wish the reader had been a bit more animated in the reading of the book. It felt like she was reading a letter.

    "You won't be disappointed and worth every second!"

    This is very well written and is one that you won't be able to stop. Anytime I had to stop listening, I couldn't wait to get back to it. I love the story. It goes back and forth in time and is easy to keep up with. A beautiful love story.

    Story
    "Poorly written; couldn't get through it!"
    What would have made Letters Never Sent better?

    I couldn't stop rolling my eyes at this main character who keeps muttering to herself! This is a badly written book, performed in a ridiculous manner.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sandra Moran again?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Weird emphasis on words, overly dramatic.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It has a homey, familiar backdrop.
