West Point, GA (Vocus) October 9, 2010
Written some sixty-five years ago, a pack of yellowed letters tied with a rotting white ribbon found its way back into the hands of author Frances Skinner Reeves. It was then that she realized that the time has come for her to finally tell about its story. Readers will unfold a timeless and unforgettable story in Those Yellowed Letters, made available through Xlibris.
This true story is told through letters written to a college junior from an unwanted suitor, just after World War II. His letters are fascinating but also a bit mad. Through the lines of each letter, readers will be left questioning if the highly intelligent boy could be suffering from adolescent angst, mental instability, or was he just head over heels in love with “Sparrow.” Furthermore, the reader is left to ‘read between the lines’ of the untold story.
The Epilogue engenders warm feelings for the writer of the letters. The fact that he did well, that he is still around, and that he feels he had wronged his “Sparrow” with his obsession, makes for a touching, interesting, and beautiful story.
This book will be featured at this year’s California Library Association Book Exhibit in Sacramento, CA on November 12-15, 2010. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to Xlibris.com.
