Short and sweet! I enjoyed this take on a pen-pal romance. The author did a great job of evolving the writing style in the letters as the characters aged. The magical appearance of the letters heightened the anticipation for both me and Hannah. Though mostly one-sided, and the characters had built each other up in their imaginations, enough truth about each person was revealed to make the promise of budding love realistic. I would like to know more about the owl and how he chose Hannah, and more about how the fairy Court works, but it was a fun and entertaining listen.
