For the Love of Letters

Letter writing is a lost art.  I still receive an occasional lovely letter from a friend or relative and they are so refreshing.  Of course, I am one of those people who loves to type, my writing is terrible, and writing hurts my hands–

(maybe that is due to the fact I still squeeze my pencil or pen like I did in First Grade, much to Mrs. Backlund’s chagrin)

Anyway, if you still love books and admire those who still write letters, you must read:

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

All of the characters develop through letters.  If an event happens, it is described in a letter.  All communication is described through letters.  It is just amazing how the emotion, history, and connection comes through.  A great read!
