Publisher's Summary

'When I was 12 years old God spoke to my father for the first time. God didn't say much. He told my father to be a painter and left it at that.... '

So begins Niall Williams' magical tale about love and destiny. Nicholas Coughlan and Isabel Gore were made for each other - but fate doesn't always take the easiest or the most obvious route to true love. For a start, Nicholas and Isabel have never met and nor are they likely to, without some kind of divine intervention. But as God, ghosts, a series of coincidences and seemingly chance events and encounters conspire to bring the couple together, other - often more human - forces attempt to keep them apart. 'What will be, will be,' of course, but that doesn't guarantee a happy-ever-after ending, nor answer the question 'Will they or won't they?'

Written in a lyrical, lilting tone, Four Letters of Love is a glorious, uplifting story about faith, about seizing the moment, believing in your instincts and acting on impulse - and about following your heart, no matter where it may lead.

A dream like story read brilliantly.

This lovely tale, set on Southern Ireland, is made all the lovelier by its beautiful reading. The poetic language reads like a ballad and contours up vivid pictures as it weaves the mystery of the story from start to finish. Almost ethereal, the characters come alive. I was spellbound. Anyone who likes poetic language and a gentle story with a different type, but pleasing ending, will adore it.

Couldn't stop listening

If you could sum up Four Letters of Love in three words, what would they be?

So refreshing to hear an Irish book read with sympathy and humour
