When Kate Harding, recently widowed, receives nine antique hatboxes—family letters, diaries and memorabilia - from Hartford, Connecticut, she finds herself drawn back to the childhood summers spent in her grandparents' house. Over the course of a year she immerses herself in the documents pertaining to her grandparents' courtship and early married life, and this journey back becomes the way forward for her. Open this novel for the secrets of a long ago world as well as for the author's incredible awareness of the natural world, and enjoy it.
This is indeed a slow paced book, but wonderfully so. It clearly conveys the grieving process and memoirs and memories of those living and dead intersect in life. it is filled with delightfully crafted phrases that resonate afterwards and a story that pulls the reader. I too plan to buy and reread in the future because the writer is that good.
Would have liked more on the old letters, less on the grieving process, but still a good read.
This is a beautifully written book about love and loss and finding oneself. It will also appeal to anyone who loves the Atlantic coast.
It's so good, I'm going to buy a copy and add it to my own library.
