Blog Tour & Review: The Letter by Sandra Owens

THE LETTER is the story of a betrayal that wasn't. Even so, it still tore apart two lovers for eleven years.
On the eve of their wedding, Michael Jeffres, Earl of Daventry, found his betrothed-- the woman who meant as much to him as the air he breathed--in bed with his cousin, Leo. Diana remembers nothing of that night. All she knows is that she was forced to marry Leo and then spent the next eleven years in hell.
When the two lovers are brought back together by a letter from Leo a year after his death, Michael and Diana must struggle through all the lies and secrets before they can find a love that far surpasses the one of their youth.

Sandra Owens
Sandra lives in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Most days, you can find her with her fingers on a keyboard, her mind in the world of her imagination. It's a land where romance and happy endings exist, a land where anything is possible.When her husband can drag her away from her computer, she likes to travel with her very own hero in their RV, but she always brings her laptop. There are still stories to write, after all.A few highlights of Sandra's life she fondly recalls are jumping out of a plane, flying upside down in a stunt plane, and riding her Harley in the mountains of Southern California and along the coast of Maine. She's managed a private airport and held the position of General Manager of a Harley-Davidson dealership.Although those events in her life were great fun, nothing compares to the joy and satisfaction she gets from writing her stories.

OMG! This one reminded me of Downton Abby, my favorite show! All of these Earl's, Barron's, Ladies and Duchess....Wonderful!!! The book started with "The Letter", which I thought was Brilliant! What a shocking scandal for 1814! 

This is a story about the age old tale of jealousy but the lengths that one man took to ruin another's life was unbelievable! Michael and Diana had everything and were about to be married when Leo, Michael's first cousin, played the ultimate trick on the whole family. Leo ended up marring Diana and keeping her and her son locked away from society. When Leo dies he has a letter sent to his cousin telling of all the secrets he has kept. Michael immediately goes in search of Diana and her son. He brings them out of seclusion slowly and gains their trust. 

I love Michael and his "plan"! This book told a beautiful love story! I enjoyed reading it so much!

I give it 5 stars!
