“I love you”. One tiny little phrase, engraved on a letter… of pure gold. An ornament created out of love which would trigger the destiny of three women: grandmother Smaragda, her daughter Chrysafenia and her granddaughter Smaragda. A story that would repeat itself.

A journey from an Istanbul of 1910 to a Greece of 2016. Both then and now, both here and there, the letter was always present… Lena Manta, beloved author of over 1,7 million readers, returns with her LETTER OF GOLD, a novel about a love that travelled from generation to generation, two families which should never have met. The book is available in two editions with different covers - one gold and one black.
