Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finishes a great story. The letters Laura writes to Manly are filled with great imagery and are so easy to read. Laura is having such a good time experiencing everything that is so new to her. She describes every detail with such picture perfect vocabulary, it is really just stunning to read.
