About the book
In a Glasgow post office, Nan Megratta collects illegible, damaged and defaced letters and delivers them to their destinations. The Returned Letters Section offers her anonymity: she is just one more item lost in the post. That anonymity is shattered when a blackmail letter crosses her desk.

Despite its intriguing beginning, we felt the novel tackled too many themes, and the narrative flitted about too much causing confusion. Glasgow seemed to be the most interesting “character” in the book, but overall we weren’t very impressed.
