HASH(0xa1c4eee8) out of 5 stars Don't waste your time Dec 30 2011

For $4 you are buying ONE short story. What daylight robbery. Story was not inspiring or funny or anything like I've got used to with Cathy Kelly. Just one, short, boring story! Very disappointing.

HASH(0xa1c51150) out of 5 stars Simply Wonderful! Nov. 19 2011
By Amanda - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was a very short but very special story. The author gives a wonderful insight into the lives of ordinary people who you find yourself rooting for right up until the end. I read it in under two hours - but they were great hours. Not every story needs to be a sweeping saga. Sometimes, it's the simple tales in life--that we can all relate to--which make for the most charming and memorable stories. You could buy a magazine for $5.00 read it under an hour, and forget in less than a minute. This story is much better value than that--and it's a keeper. :)

Wow this isn't a book. Really wasn't worth what I paid for it. I'll be paying more attention to the file size before I buy from now on.
HASH(0xa1c51534) out of 5 stars a feel-good ending April 23 2014

Format: Paperback
Letter from Chicago is a novella by Irish author Cathy Kelly in the Open Door series. Sisters Elsie and Maisie are grandmothers who haven’t see each other for forty-five years: not since Maisie married and moved to Chicago, where Maisie’s family are now prosperous and important. But they exchange regular letters, and this is the root of the trouble when Maisie writes to say her granddaughter Charleen is coming to stay in Dublin. Elsie has perhaps exaggerated her own family’s good fortune just a bit, so her daughter Kim’s position as headmistress, her mansion in the country, her housekeeper and her children’s ponies exist more in Elsie’s imagination than in reality. Nonetheless, once she confesses, her resourceful younger daughter, Clodagh pulls the family together to save the day. And when Charleen and her friend arrive, certain truths are revealed. The plot may be predictable, but the execution is faultless; the characters are appealing and the novella has a feel-good ending.

As usual Cathy Kelly has taken me to a warm cosy place. She writes a good heart warming story. It was very close to my heart being an ex pat. I laughed at the Grandmother, the main character, how she had written glowing letters to her sister in America, exaggerating her and her family's circumstances and how shocked she was at the prospects of being 'found out'. It all ended well with everyone having a lovely reunion and discovering that her Sister had told her own little white lies. I love Cathy Kelly and wait in anticipation of her next new book. It's so nice to read a book that makes you feel good.
