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!
