The unconventional circumstances of Helen's birth almost ruined her life. In the compelling story, Letters from Helen, the reader meets Helen, who was born in India in 1926. As an infant, she is sent back to England and put up for adoption when her British army officer father discovers that she is not really his daughter.

In this lovingly crafted celebration of family and life, a courageous young woman comes of age against the backdrop of World War II England. As Helen matures, marries, and starts her own family, she shares her secrets, hardships, joys, and sorrows with her American cousin. Their letters are woven into the book. Her unfulfilled desire to atone for the stain of her illegitimacy is a recurrent theme in the story, and her quest and its resolution will touch your heart.

The endearing characters, who are at once ordinary and extraordinary, will linger with you. Their own misdeeds,triumphs, tragedies, and romances lend a rich texture to the book. And the final unexpected plot twist will leave you captivated and satisfied.
