The People in the Photo by Helene Gestern

I love letters. (Not <3 letters, just letters in general). I love writing them and receiving them. Email, text, DMs, are fine and convenient but not can compare to what goes into communicating through letters. Perhaps I’m romanticizing something that may seem trivial but consider the effort that is dispensed (write, fold, stamp, and mail), of course it’s the “thought” that counts but I always appreciate “effort”.

Our two characters have explicitly displayed plenty of effort in search of truth, love, and possibly redemption. Helene and Stephane venture on a trip down memory lane, crossing different decades and countries. This is a story of love and less, perpetual loss because of guilt and pride. This book reminds us that the human experience doesn’t necessarily have to end when you do. Read this book and you’ll understand.
