Can one fall in love from writing letters? Can they be themselves and tell their secrets, wishes and hopes to another? If you think so, then you will enjoy Till Next We Meet. It starts out as letters then progresses to much more.

Moncrief has been writing the letters back to Catherine as her husband will not and her husband does not even read the letters but just hands them over to Moncrief. Moncrief helps Catherine when she needs it, but she thinks it is actually her husband and he lets her believe it. But can it continue? He has fallen in love with Catherine just by her letters. As she gives them so much life by just writing what she feels and what needs to be done around the estate and how is bothering her.

Catherine holds onto the letters as if they are her lifeline when her husband dies. She cherishes them and even keeps one very near to her at all times. She is also very deeply in mourning and depressed. Some days she canít even get out of bed and when she does she doesnít remember much at all.

Moncrief finds Catherine in almost a comatose state and realizes immediately what the problem is. He sets about to bring her back to life and the only way to save her reputation is to marry her. Which he does, but Catherine doesnít even remember it. This starts the beginning of their marriage and Catherine is still holding onto the letters of her husband and what he has written to her.

Will Catherine ever see that it is really Moncrief that has her love and not her dead husband? There are plenty of hurdles that Catherine must overcome and a few for Moncrief as well before they can find the happiness and trust they did in the letters. What happens will Catherine finally pieces it all together that the man she loves has been in front of her the whole time?

Till Next We Meet is about finding love when we least expect it. Giving us hope when we didnít know or think we needed it. Showing that you can fall in love and be yourself at the same time. Catherine and Moncrief are perfect for one another. They complement the other in so many ways, they can also be very stubborn in what they want. The story not only has love but also intrigue, attempted murder and a few other things as well that will keep and hold your attention.
