When Harry Met Lila, Letters Of Love...Lessons For Life

It is my hope that Harry and Lila's thoughts and prayers would mingle with my own reflections so that the reader might recognize the presence and power of a loving God in the life of our family.

Gordon N. Smith’s new book, When Harry Met Lila, Letters Of Love...Lessons For Life, ($9.99, paperback, 9781498412933; $4.99, e-book, 9781498412940) is a uniquely romantic and lesson lending compilation of love letters between the author’s grandparents, otherwise known as Harry and Lila. The author recreates the actual letters that were exchanged, and have since been cherished, during their courtship in the 1920s. In Smith’s words, “When Harry Met Lila is a love story whose words breathe life into our understanding of true intimacy, and give testimony to the power by which our relationships endure.”

“It is my hope that Harry and Lila's thoughts and prayers would mingle with my own reflections so that the reader might recognize the presence and power of a loving God in the life of our family,” states the author. “I also hope that readers will listen to voices of the past, hear the call of the present, and open their eyes and hearts to a faith that can fire and fuel their relationships to a deeper, and more lasting love.”

As previously mentioned, author Gordon N. Smith is the grandson of Harry Gordon Smith and Lila Harvey Covert (Smith). These writings are a combination of real life letters and biblical reflections. The author lends the beauty of a pastor’s voice to this delightful work. Vocational ministry has brought new eyes with which to see and recognize the lessons of life and faith that he has learned from his family, along with a desire to express them as eloquently and efficiently as possible. “This book, albeit short and sweet, was a joy to write,” shares the author.
