The Lost Letters of William Woolf
Book Feature - The Lost Letters of William Woolf by Helen Cullen
HBL Note: In my author interviews I ask authors what they would be if they weren’t authors. I think I found my answer. I would love to have William Woolf’s job of letter detective - finding the home of lost letters in an attempt to unite them with their intended recipients. Just imagine the stories that could come from that profession! It seems like such a romantic profession, at least in my imagination.

From the publisher:
Lost letters have only one hope for survival...
Inside the walls of the Dead Letters Depot, letter detectives work to solve mysteries. They study missing zip codes, illegible handwriting, rain-smudged ink, lost address labels, torn packages, forgotten street names—all the many twists of fate behind missed birthdays, broken hearts, unheard confessions, pointless accusations, unpaid bills, unanswered prayers. Their mission is to unite lost mail with its intended recipients.
But when letters arrive addressed simply to “My Great Love,” longtime letter detective William Woolf faces his greatest mystery to date. Written by a woman to the soulmate she hasn’t met yet, the missives capture William’s heart in ways he didn’t know possible. Soon, he finds himself torn between the realities of his own marriage and his world of letters, and his quest to follow the clues becomes a life-changing journey of love, hope, and courage.
From Irish author Helen Cullen, The Lost Letters of William Woolf is an enchanting novel about the resilience of the human heart and the complex ideas we hold about love—and a passionate ode to the art of letter writing.
