My first review is appropriately from the Oxford Mail, as Oxford features prominently in the book. It’s where Martin was studying, where my mother lived as a child, and where much of their courting took place. As a result, the city had a special place in my mother’s heart all her life.
Love Letters In A Chocolate Box The Very White of Love is based on a true story, inspired by the author’s discovery of a chocolate box full of love letters between his mother, Nancy, and her fiancé, Martin Preston, the nephew of the poet Robert Graves. Simon Worrall has pieced together the fictional narrative using these genuine letters to write a heartbreaking and timeless love story.
The Story After a whirlwind romance, Martin is sent to the battlefields of France in 1939, telling Nancy their love will keep them safe. Then one day, his letters stop. Nancy will do anything to find him, but will she unravel the mystery of his disappearance in time?
