Letters the author was unknown and most people assumed they were the fictional product of a French aristocrat Now Myriam Cyr persuasively makes the case that the nun Mariana Alcoforado did indeed write the letters and her story is one of the most moving in the history of forbidden lov. I initially picked up the book thinking it would have an introduction covering the background and history of the period surrounding the letters with the majority of the text being the actually letters Much to my surprise it was uite the reverse The history of the period and mystery surrounding the letters was nicely explained to the level of those who are not a fan of reading about history or herstory The letters did take me back to times when I have felt used and rejected by those I thought had than a passing fancy I don't agree with one of the reviews that Mariana should have just gotten over it as it applies contemporary ideas of love and sex on the past The reviewer seems to have forgotten that Mariana spent the majority of her life in a convent with little access to the outside world and was subject to different rules governing proprietyI would recommend this to people who want a light reading on the Portuguese Letters
