About Nine Love Letters
The story begins in the early 1940s in Budapest and Baghdad where, 1,600 miles apart, Jewish communities are being brutally purged by fascists. In different, but equally devastating circumstances, the Weisz and Haroun families flee their homes to seek safety in England. As both clans deal with the challenges, upheavals and horrors of the Holocaust and its legacy,
their lives become intertwined after an unlikely
twist of fate. Nine Love Letters is a poignant and tender novel about the enduring power of love across generations, based on real events.
