Reviews of The Lost Letter
‘I really liked this story. I liked the characters and the descriptions of Morocco. I was totally swept up in this story from the start. Parts of it are really heart-breaking and had me close to tears. It is beautifully written and told with feeling. I would definitely recommend reading it.’
‘Just finished reading The Lost Letter From Morocco! OMG I fell in love with the characters especially Addy and Omar. PLEASE tell me there is a sequel, or several sequels in the works. I want to find out what happens to Amine and Fatima, what really happened to Hanane and more on the life of Addy and Omar… I read all the time… several books always on the go, but with this one the characters live in my heart… I look forward to hopefully hearing more books are coming soon…’
‘I really enjoyed reading this book. I started it on holiday whilst in Morocco visiting Marrakech, with trips to the Atlas Mountains and surrounding villages, this helped me to immerse myself in the book and have more of a feel for the characters. I liked the plot and it kept me guessing the outcome to the very end. I have just finished it and felt compelled to send a copy to a friend who I was also visiting the country with, as I know that she would enjoy it too.’
‘Light-hearted, interesting and gripping storyline. Very captivating throughout with a perfect twist and happy climax. Highly recommend this book to any age group.’
‘A wonderful vivid glimpse at life in Morocco full of colour and characters. The story from modern times mixes nicely with the story from the past and eventually link up. The culture of the Muslim family is upfront, but the true warmth and bonds they have is clear and true. A nice twist at the end. Overall a really good read.’
‘This is a lovely book. I love everything about Morocco and reading this was a joy. The characters felt real and I could relate to them. After all the thrillers I’ve read this book was a nice change. Highly recommended!’
‘You really get a sense of true authenticity relating to Morocco, the author has done a superb job in creating this book.’
‘Lovely, emotional, at times heart-wrenching. A book that drew me right in and involved me. Sorry to see it end. Literary, wonderfully written, highly recommend.’
‘What a wonderful book, beautifully written, felt like I was in Morocco. Would definitely recommend it.’
‘By the end I had slowed down almost to a stop, just so the story didn’t have to finish. I want to find out what happens with all these characters that I now care about so much. Will definitely be keeping an eye out for any sequel.’
