The Missing Letters of Mrs. Bright
Beth Miller
Women’s fiction
327 pages

This book must be flying under the radar, I am surprised that there are not more reviews for it. This target readership would be women, but this is not chick lit. I would call it a comfort novel, like comfort food.
The story centres on Kay who is approaching her 30th wedding anniversary but does not want to be married anymore. She wants to find herself. We meet her lifelong friends, we meet her family, we share her journey as she decides what her future will be.
Every character in the book is well developed and they fit into the story well. The reader shares some laughs with Kay and also some tears. There is the required amount of drama.
This is a book about family, love, life, friendship and of course the required secret. At times the writing is quite humorous. I was sorry to see it end.
I think fans of the Maeve Binchy novels of the 1990s would enjoy this book.
