      Bernice Rubens I Sent A Letter to My Love is an odd sort of romance You know from the beginning of the affair that it isn t going to go well I think the emotions depicted here feel real the frustrated dreams, the weird tension, the growing to love and want and be confidentThe problem with it, for me, is that it s also very uncomfortable I felt embarrassed for the main character, and just I didn t like how it could turn out The end is both final for her and very open for everyone else.Plus, I kno [...]

      I REALLY enjoyed this book The style and mood of this work is playful, intense, creative and enticing and dark, but not a depressing dark, maybe sinister is the better word here Just one of these feelings where you wonder uh oh This isn t going to end well But you HAVE to keep reading to find out It doesn t end as bad as I imagined But on the other hand, it isn t what I d call a happy ending, either bkclubcare.wordpress 2008

      A really well written novel but rather an uncomfortable read It s been a long time since I read any other Bernice Rubens but I remember enjoying the dark comedy in them this was just dark and tragic and not funny for me Back to chick lit to brighten things up next I think.

    6. Mary Lou says:

      Strangely enough, this book, like my last, is about a brother and sister Both now in their fifties, Amy and Stan, who is now confined to a wheelchair, live together Amy wonders if she has a last chance to find love.Darkly delicious as Bernice Rubens always is

      I am so glad I found Bernice Rubens She really captures her characters This is the story about loneliness, and the forms love finds when we search for connection in a deeply flawed world It is at times horrifying and often very comitragic.
