The Girl in the Letter: The most gripping, heartwrenching page-turner of the year
Taschenbuch

Content: Young journalist Sam, mother of four-years-old Emma, after a bad row with her husband Ben stays with her Grandmother, where she had grown up. Her Grandfather had died less than 12 months ago and Nana shows her a bundle of letters she had found. They are from a girl named Ivy, written a long time ago, in September 1956. Ivy had gotten pregnant and was sent to, a home for unmarried mothers, open until the mid seventies. Sam is deeply captured by this very sad, impressive story about Ivy and her baby Rose and determined to find out the truth. She has left only two days, because the old Victorian manor is going to be demolished and the persons involved are not ready to talk about St Margaret's. Are the many mysterious, sudden deaths in the area somehow linked to the past? Theme and genre: A gripping novel about the situation of pregnant but unmarried poor young girls and women, sent away by their own families to Catholic institutions. Often their babies were given up for adoption, often against the mother’s will. The story, settled in England, is based on known facts about real, similar institutions in Ireland. Characters: Sam is a modern woman, struggling to be taken serious as an investigative journalist. A working mom feeling guilty for leaving her little girl with Nana, but definitely not ready to give up to find out Ivy’s story. Ivy too is strong and helpful under her own worst conditions of life, willing to fight for her baby. Plot and writing: The gripping story has many twists, turns and many characters involved from the past until today. Told in two different main time levels, Ivy’s story beginning in 1956 and Sam’s story in 2017, there are more steps into the past when it comes to events in the lives of persons involved. Although the reader from a certain moment on might have some assumptions about how some events are connected, the story remains exciting until the end. Conclusion: An impressive, gripping story, empathically written - a book that is unputdownable. Inhalt: Die junge Journalistin Sam, Mutter der vierjährigen Emma, zieht nach einem heftigen Streit mit ihrem Ehemann für eine Zeit zu ihrer Großmutter „Nana“. Ihr Großvater war vor weniger als einem Jahr verstorben und Nana zeigt Sam ein Bündel mit Briefen, das sie gefunden hatte. Diese wurden von einem Mädchen namens Ivy vor langer Zeit geschrieben, der erste im September 1956. Ivy war schwanger geworden und in ein katholisches Heim für ledige Mütter geschickt. Sam ist von dieser traurigen, beeindruckenden Geschichte von Ivy und ihrem Baby Rose tief berührt und will herausfinden, was damals wirklich passiert ist. Dazu bleiben ihr allerdings nur zwei Tage Zeit, da das alte viktorianische Gebäude, in dem dieses Heim, St. Margart’s, untergebracht war, abgerissen wird. Niemand ist wirklich bereit, mit ihr über damals zu reden. Gleichzeitig entdeckt Sam eine Reihe von rätselhaften, plötzlichen Todesfällen, die irgendwie mit St. Margaret’s zusammenzuhängen scheinen. Thema und Genre: Dieser spannende Roman handelt von der Situation von schwangeren, ledigen jungen Mädchen und Frauen, meistens aus armen Verhältnissen, die damals von ihren eigenen Familien in katholische Einrichtungen abgeschoben wurden. Oft wurden die Babys dann zur Adoption freigegeben, meistens gegen den Willen ihrer Mütter. Diese Geschichte spielt in einem fiktiven Heim in England, doch sie beruht auf inzwischen bekannten Tatsachen über die Zustände in katholischen Institutionen dieser Art in Irland. Charaktere: Samantha ist eine moderne Frau, die sich um Anerkennung als seriöse, investigative Journalistin bemüht. Einerseits hat sie als berufstätige Mutter ein schlechtes Gewissen, weil sie ihre kleine Tochter so oft bei Nana lässt, andererseits ist sie nicht gewillt, ihre Recherchen rund um Ivy’s Geschichte aufzugeben. Ivy hat einen starken Willen, selbst unter den schlimmsten Bedingungen hilft sie den anderen, wo sie kann und gibt nicht auf, um ihr Baby zu kämpfen. Handlung und Schreibstil: Die packende Handlung hat viele überraschende Wendungen und eine Reihe von Charakteren, die von der Vergangenheit bis heute in die Geschehnisse verwickelt sind. Es gibt zwei übergeordnete Erzählstränge, nämlich Ivy’s Briefe ab 1956, und Sam’s Geschichte 2017. Doch auch in den Jahren dazwischen gibt es zusätzliche Ereignisse in Rückblenden, Episoden im Leben von Personen, die schon 1956 in die Geschichte verwickelt waren. Auch wenn man als Leser von einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt an einige Zusammenhänge vermutet, bleibt die Geschichte spannend bis zum Schluss. Fazit: Eine spannende, berührende Geschichte, mit viel Einfühlungsvermögen geschrieben – ein Buch, das man nicht aus der Hand legen kann.
