Love Letters to the Home Office has a 5 star average rating on Amazon
The stories in this book are absolutely heartbreaking and highlight the real consequences of the 2012 Family Immigration Law. It was wonderful to read about the families that managed to find a way to be together but if you can get through the stories of children separated from their parents without shedding a tear you are made of stone. I urge you to buy and read this book and share it with everyone you know. By making more and more people aware of what the Home Office is doing, we can get the law changed!

Human rights for those living in the UK are now no longer the same for everybody. Since July 2012 our human rights, and lack of them, are now based on how much we earn. Your ability to be with the person you love depends, if you are from different countries, on how much your salary is – even if you have enough to support you both. And if you have children together, the economic discrimination is even greater. Children are growing up in the UK without one of their parents… Because the UK parent is not deemed wealthy enough to have a foreign spouse.
The 2012 Family Immigration Law breaches our human rights under Article 8 of the European Union Convention on Human Rights. In the face of this violation, extraordinary people in the UK and across the globe are doing everything they can to keep their love alive across borders, mountains and oceans. They show a courage and humanity, and a belief in love that demonstrates what it is to be human. Thousands of people are affected by this law. Here are some of their stories.
