My Dear Bessie: A Love Story in Letters

This is a selection of real letters between two people written during the 1940s, both during and after WW2. The couple, Chris and Bessie, start off as colleagues, but love blossoms through their letters and the whole romance is charted by increasingly loving and indeed sexy thoughts about one another. What I loved was the way the mundane days of life in the army and at home are documented along with this constant yearning to be together. It also gives an insight into what was expected of a wife post war! A great read and I would thoroughly recommend it.
