‘An enchanting contribution to the popular new trend of ‘up lit’, like Gail Honeyman’s Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine’ Irish Times ‘I found myself totally transported into William’s poignant and beguiling world of lost opportunities and love’ A. J. Pearce, author of Sunday Times bestseller Dear Mrs Bird SHORTLISTED FOR NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR, IRISH BOOK AWARDS_____________Lost letters have only one hope for survival . . . Inside the Dead Letters Depot in East London, William Woolf is one of thirty letter detectives who spend their days solving mysteries. Missing postcodes, illegible handwriting, rain-smudged ink, lost address labels, torn packages, forgotten street names – they are all the culprits of missed birthdays, broken hearts, unheard confessions, pointless accusations, unpaid bills and unanswered prayers. When William discovers letters addressed simply to ‘My Great Love’ his work takes on new meaning. Written by a woman to a soulmate she hasn’t met yet, the missives stir William in ways he didn’t know were possible. Soon he begins to wonder: Could William be her great love? William must follow the clues in Winter’s letters to solve his most important mystery yet: the human heart.______________As heard on BBC Radio 2 The Steve Wright Show . . . ‘If you liked Harold Fry and Me Before You, you will love Cullen’s nostalgic debut. This life-affirming book will draw you in and keep you there’ Independent’Delightful’ Sunday Times ‘Deeply moving’ Irish Times’Captivates. William has what seems to be the best job in the world . . . Honest yet lyrical, Cullen’s characters are drawn with sympathy. Lose yourself’ The Scotsman
