This book was a sweet historical romance that swept me back to a time with dead letter offices, community dances, writing long letters, boardinghouses and taking chances. Penny was a young girl who felt things deeply and wanted romance more than anything in her life, but she felt stuck. She had determination and spunk to to pick up and travel to a faraway place on her journey to finding true love. This book gives a glimpse as to what a possible lost letter might give to woman searching for a place to belong. I enjoyed this story.
