Letters Never Sent by Sandra Moran

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

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. 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 Joan 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.

About the Author

Sandra Moran was an author and assistant adjunct professor of anthropology at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. A native Kansan, she had worked professionally as a newspaper journalist, a political speech writer, and an archaeological tour manager. In her novels, she strove to create flawed characters struggling to find themselves within the cultural constructs of gender, religion, and sexuality. Despite being an avid marathon/ultra marathon runner, gym rat, and living healthy, she lost her battle to an aggressive cancer in November 2015, just weeks shy of her forty-seventh birthday.

I am normally a non-fiction reader but I couldn't put this book down! The time period the book covers is one of my favorites. The book caught my interest on the first page. This is the first novel by this author and I'm already anxious for her next book to come out! It truly is a great read. You'll enjoy it!

Overall the book was a very sweet story. A little long and very predictable but sweet

When I started out reading this book, I was sure that I knew where it was going. I was very pleasantly surprised that I was wrong; there were many twists and turns, along with very good character development. Good story.

I'm not gay or bi and for a male to enjoy a story whose theme is a lesbian relationship is surprising. Great new author.

I was so impressed by this book. The story line held my interest from beginning to end. I started reading it one morning and spent the entire day reading until I finished it. It's hard to believe this is the author's first book! I look forward to her next one.
