Justine Nolan is a documentary film maker who lost her beloved grandmother a decade ago—the person who was the only source of love and comfort in her life.  Her own mother Deborah had always been distant and uninvolved, following her own agenda in pursuit of her career as an interior designer.  But when Justine inadvertently opens a letter addressed to her mother, she discovers that not only is her grandmother Gabri alive, but that Deborah has deliberately estranged the family from her for all these years.  Justine’s search for her grandmother takes her to Istanbul where she begins to uncover the family’s secrets that stretch all the way back to World War II.  As the layers of deception peel away, Justine begins to understand a woman she never really knew…and she begins to ask questions about the true desires of her own heart.

Reviewed by: LisaBook provided by:Get Red PRReview originally posted at Romancing the BookWhile enjoying the weekend at her family’s Connecticut home, Indian Ridge, Justine Nolan opens a letter that will change her life and those around her. She learns that her grandmother is alive and did not perish in a plane crash. For the past ten years Justine and her twin brother Richard have grieved the loss of their beloved grandmother Gabrielle. Their mother Deborah purposely had estranged herself and her children from her mother’s life. The twins agree that they must search for their grandmother immediately and Justine leaves for Istanbul to begin the most important journey of her life.Letter from a Stranger is a story about loves lost, found and the bonds that hold a family together through the darkest times. The relationship between Justine and her grandmother is touching and emotional. The fact that Justine’s own mother was so distant when she was growing up makes her reunion with Gabri so much sweeter. Finding her grandmother allows Justine to open her heart to find love with a mysterious handsome man. The secondary characters are engaging and interesting. The back-story of Anita Lowe and her friendship with Gabri is fascinating and leaves the reader wanting to learn more about her.The most moving part of the story details Gabri’s childhood growing up in Germany during World War II. The description of Germany and Europe during those years was riveting and horrifying. The images conjured with the vivid description of Istanbul are beautiful. The reader can easily picture sitting in a beautiful garden having afternoon tea or shopping in one of the markets. Barbara Taylor Bradford’s Letters from a Stranger is an intriguing story full of romance, secrets, mystery and drama. The book is a slow paced enjoyable read. Grab a cup of tea, a piece of baklava, relax and get lost in Justine’s quest for truth and the magic of Istanbul.
