SYNOPSIS: Bianca just dropped out of a bachelor she didn’t like, her parents are about to divorce and her little brothers are getting noisier every day. The perfect opportunity to escape comes when her boyfriend, Miguel, has to go to Rome to open a company for his father. Bianca decides that learning Italian, getting a temporary job and helping Miguel in his business would be a good start. What seemed like a dream, however, becomes an even bigger uncertainty when Miguel stays out all the time, Bianca’s jobs don’t last more than a week and each day closer to Enzo — Miguel’s best friend, with whom they share an apartment —, she starts to question her feelings.

“The Letters of Love” is a youthful novel that addresses the complications of when you start to love two persons at the same time, and those two persons share a bond of friendship and trust. When love and desire break those bonds and build others, forming a tangle of confusing and painful feelings. It also talks about the discovery of oneself, of what worries a young person, the normal concerns of growing up, and the happiness to find someone that sees the reality in a similar way to yours. It is the story of a girl in Rome, which grows, learns, loves and lives in the most intense way.

“Recently, it seems like every time a romantic movie ends, in that usual kiss or wedding scene — you know, with the epic music playing, the bells ringing and all that — I wonder: ‘Ok, and now what?’

I don’t know what is wrong with the world, or if it is only Hollywood, but why does the story end when it, in fact, starts? I mean, the nice part is only when they meet, and when they get married everything is so predictable that is not worth showing?

I look at the TV, the credits of ‘Love in Two Tones’ rolling up, and I imagine what comes after for Laura and Max, the protagonists of the story.” (Page 7)



“You start to read and when you realize you already finished and you are hugging the book, because the setting is incredible. Paula writes about the places with a lot of knowledge and you feel like you are visiting Rome and living everything together with the characters, which were all very well constructed by the way.” – Bruna Costabeber, from the blog “Um Oceano de Histórias”.

“In The Letters of Love we experience an intense and pleasant story with an important lesson about friendship, forgiveness, knowledge about yourself, and changes. With a special playlist for each chapter, prepare to feel like you are inside of the story and to fall in love with the characters. The perfect balance between a simple and intense story, fun and dramatic, cliche and enchanting, for all ages. This more than recommended book already got into my favorites! I hope you can like it as much as me.” – Bruna Soares, from the blog “Brooke Bells”.

“It is a great book for those who like romance, and for those who like to follow the maturing of the characters. The author Paula Ottoni easily envolves us in the story, and she has a light and cosy writing.”– Bárbara from the blog “Myself Here”.

“Despite it being a cliche romance with a predictable ending, I could identify a lot with the protagonist. The main point of the book is not the romance, in my opinion, but instead all the conflict she goes through to try to find herself and decide what to do with her future. I believe everyone that has been through similar situations will love the book.” – Carol Mendes, from the blog “Virando Amor”.

“The book is about love, friendship and Italy. A friendship that became love. A love that became friendship. A friendship that was shattered. New friendships that were created… I love all the pages and Paula’s writing style. It is a light and simple writing, but very captivating! I really felt like I was in Italy – even though I have never visited the country! And of course, the book is a little cliche, yes, but it overflows with sweetness in every page turned.” – Fabiana, from the blog “P.S. Amo Leitura”.

The writing of this author is very delightful. You can’t stop reading at all. I am not the biggest fan of romances and I got so surprised with this books that it even got into my favorites! ‘The Letters of Love’ is one of the best romances I have ever read. Read it. Seriously.” – Thalita Lima, from the literary Instagram “Colorindo Devaneios”.
