The Lost Letters of William Woolf by Helen Cullen

Lost letters have only one hope for survival…

Inside the Dead Letters Depot in East London, William Woolf is one of thirty letter detectives who spend their days solving mysteries.  Missing postcodes, illegible handwriting, rain-smudged ink, lost address labels, torn packages, forgotten street names – they are all the culprits of missed birthdays, broken hearts, unheard confessions, pointless accusations, unpaid bills and unanswered prayers.

When William discovers letters addressed simply to ‘My Great Love’ his work takes on new meaning.

Written by a woman to a soulmate she hasn’t met yet, the missives stir William in ways he didn’t know were possible.  Soon he begins to wonder: Could William be her great love?

William must follow the clues in Winter’s letters to solve his most important mystery yet: the human heart.

Peer & Press Reviews

If you liked Harold Fry and Me Before You, you will love Helen Cullen’s nostalgic debut.  With its themes of love, romance and frustrated hopes, this life-affirming book will draw you in and keep you there.


A charming romantic caper.  William Woolf, a thirty-something Englishman working in the dead letters depot of London, is the latest in a tribe of unlikely heroes.  Delightful.

Sunday Times

Is it love or fantasy which is tormenting him?  An original, refreshing novel about lost love and whether the grass is greener on the other side.
