Publisher's Summary

World War II has separated Isobel Johnson from her friends. The last thing she wants is to inherit Laneside House, a dilapidated property on the Yorkshire moors. Only her great-grandfather’s letter written originally from the Tower of London persuades her to restore the house. When the task proves overwhelming, Isobel turns to Daniel Armstrong, He gives support when tragedy strikes, and it seems their future should be together. But will Daniel’s love for his own home prevent his settling in Isobel’s? Will she be obliged to live for ever alone in Laneside House? Or dare she hope that her dream of finding true happiness there might be fulfilled?

    What would have made Letter from the Tower better?

    A good story would've helped. The letter is a red-herring!!!This is the same old story of girl meets boy, boy goes astray, girl meets new boy & has to make a decision. I had such great expectations for this story but it all came to nought. It was all I could do to finish it. I did finish it though because I wanted to know more about the Letter.


    What could Kay Stephens have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This was supposed to be a period piece I guess - the period right after WWII ended - where the young people were rebuilding their lives. But it turned into a very dull romance with a wimpy heroine. Yeah, she reworked an old family cottage on the moors but it could've been so much better. No excitement, no real history, no sex, no mystery . . . .


    What three words best describe Julia Barrie’s voice?

    high & nasal


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Letter from the Tower?

    Back to bare bones outline & tell a real story.
