RACHEL, saved from an attack twelve years before by a faceless stranger, never got to thank him, never knew his name.
Despite the devastation she chose to rise above it to help others from their pain by becoming a psychologist…. Her only issue now is that she’s an expert at fixing everyone else’s problems, and blind to her own.
After a long relationship with her boyfriend WILL starts to go south, she turns to her best friend AMELIA for guidance.
Suddenly her world is turned upside down when tragedy strikes and she’s left with no one to comfort her but Will’s rude older brother RUARI.
Paralyzed by fear, she struggles to take grip of her life, until the day when anonymous letters begin to appear from the stranger who saved her twelve years before.
Trauma, romance, mystery…The Secret Letters has a lot going on, and it is very compelling. The emotions are raw and as a reader, I could really feel them. It was easy to sympathize.
The mystery was not overly complicated and I was able to figure it out, but I think that was the point. It was more about how Rachel reacted than who the mysterious writer was.
Taryn Leigh’s writing is wonderful. I felt transported into South Africa. It was great.
Overall, The Secret Letters is a powerful novel that I recommend giving a shot.
