Romance novel author, Vivian Kline, is proud to announce the release of her new book, “Love in the ‘40’s When Mail Came Twice a Day.” The book, launched last month, chronicles an intimate glimpse into the lives of two people living 80 miles apart who kept their love for each other going through letter writing.

The launch of this new romance novel, written by Vivian Kline, provides an intimate look into their love story and tells the tale of living during the war years in the ‘40s. “Not many people saved both sides of a correspondence, back before e-mails, Facebook and Twitter,” says author, Vivian Kline.

Vivian was nineteen years old at Vasser College, and Danny was a twenty six year old PhD student at Columbia in New York City. At that time, when they were 80 miles apart, phone calls cost 25 times more than a 3 cent stamp, so they just wrote and wrote.

Sixty eight years later, Vivian found those letters in a cardboard box and wants to share the story of the love between her and her late husband with her readers. The book not only tells a love story, but also gives a firsthand perspective of what it was like to live in the war years in America.

The book is Vivian’s third published novel, and is currently available on Kindle and Amazon, Joseph Beth Booksellers, and The Bookshelf. The reviews are all raving about Vivian’s love story.
