They live in a world of church fetes and amateur dramatics, but love nothing more than dipping their pens in the vitriol pot - while remaining the firmest of pen-pals.

Brilliant series

If you could sum up Ladies of Letters in three words, what would they be?

Funny, thought-provoking

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ladies of Letters?

Irene being taken in by the man posing as her son - it was so obvious to everyone but her what he was up to!

What about Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge ’s performance did you like?

Both these excellent actresses were perfect in their respective roles as Irene and Vera. They embraced the characters completely.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh, but it also made me stop to think about family relationships - both women had daughters who took them for granted and were often less than loving.

Any additional comments?

Why isn't there an audio version of the second series (More Ladies of Letter)? A big chunk is missing from the story line!
