This is a love story.

It's the story of Howling Books, where readers write letters to strangers, to lovers, to poets.
It's the story of Henry Jones and Rachel Sweetie. They were best friends once, before Rachel moved to the sea.

Now, she's back, working at the bookstore, grieving for her brother Cal and looking for the future in the books people love, and the words they leave behind. 


What a wonderful idea for a book. A book that deals with book, friendship and love. What is there to not love? I fell in love with this book within couple minutes of reading it. Such beautifully written book.

Have you ever read a book that you kept thinking about, that you couldn’t forget? WORDS IN DEEP BLUE Besides isn’t title catching? How can a title like that not catch your attention and have you curious. I have never read a book by CATH CROWLEY before. I happen to be at library when I came across this book and the title was first what captured my attention, followed by the cover. I was curious about the title so I picked up the book, and once I read the summary, I was hooked. I had a strong feeling that I was going to love this book, and I did. From beginning to the end. It was sad, and there was quite few dramatic moments and that’s what I loved about it. Just when I thought that I reached a stopping point, something else would happen and pull me back into story. Reading from Henry and Rachel’s point of view, helped you as reader to understand the character more. To me, it felt as they became real, they became my friends by how much I learned about them through their thoughts and their feelings. I don’t think I be able to put this book down even if I wanted to. I think the only reason I did was due to work.

Even I knew that Henry and Rachel should be together. Just like Rachel, I wondered what happened to that letter that she wrote to Henry. I wondered if he read it. I know that he didn’t when he talked her, and told her why she didn’t say goodbye. I knew that he couldn’t have read the letter. Which of course made me wonder what happened to it, if it was still in the book that she left it in. When she found it missing, I wondered where it was and who read it. I wasn’t that surprised that it was Amy. I didn’t like her. I didn’t like how she would break his heart and then run back to him. I was waiting for him to see, that Amy wasn’t the one that he should be, that she wasn’t one that he loved, not way that he thought. That it was Rachel. I wanted to talk some sense into him and make him see that Rachel was the one for him. I just wished that he seen it sooner. I did love the letters that the two of them started to exchange, and I knew how much Rachel still cared about him, considering that he was the first person that she told about what happened to Cal. She might have thought that she didn’t love him anymore, but that’s not a feeling that just goes away.

I loved the idea of Letter Library, I would love it if somewhere out there it existed. A place where you can writer letters, notes, inside book, your favorite book. I loved reading the letters that people written to each other. I, especially loved the letters that George and Cal exchanged through the years, even if she didn’t know it was him at first. They fell in love by exchanging letters in Letter Library for three years. I thought that it was romantic. My heart broke for George. She never get to see him, to meet him. I can’t imagine how it is to meet someone, and then never having chance to meet them, to tell them you love them. It’s heart breaking. My hearts broke for both George and Rachel. I could tell how hard it was for Rachel, even thought she left to get away from it, and to try and forget. But how can you forget something like that? I was glad that Henry was there for her. I was also glad that at least George had Martin to rely on, to help her though this.

A tragic, yet a beautiful, breathtaking story about Love, Friendship, Grief. You will through emotions reading this book. Reading WORDS IN DEEP BLUE will make you want pick up another book afterwards and read, read. At least that the feeling I got after reading it. A book that will stay with you.
