  • Enthralling

    I love the link to the past especially to such a historical and momentous period - the Suffragettes. The determination and fight of a whole community, which shows how humanity can overthrow money and corruption and results in a warm, thrilling tale.

  • Two dedicated teachers and a century apart.

    The Secret Letter has a dual timeline story that links two teachers together, both are fighting for the local children to receive an education in Kent and a century apart. Esther Watkins is a suffragette, she's just been released from Holloway prison, where she was locked up for a month and force fed. Esther’s a teacher, the school she works for terminates her employment, and she’s not welcome at her mother’s house and fellow suffragette Agnes Oliver employees her as a live in governess for her children. When she’s banished from London due to her involvement with the cause, she moves to Elm Heath, a small farming community, they don’t have a school, and Esther's determined to open one. Elizabeth Armstrong’s marriage has ended badly, she leaves London and is the new deputy head of Elm Heath School. Lizzie’s pleasantly surprised by her new job, her co-workers are friendly, the students and parents are lovely and she really likes the community spirit. The numbers at the school have been slowly dropping, the council is considering closing the school, Elizabeth and her fellow teachers need to come up with a plan to keep it open and be financially viable. Lizzie discovers the link between Esther Watkins the founder of the school, her being a suffragette, they use her story as inspiration, the whole community rallies together and saves the school from developers. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, I look forward to reading other books by Kerry Barrett and four stars from me.
