Those Yellowed Letters

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, May 26, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 72 pages
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. Could this highly intelligent boy be suffering from adolescent angst and mental instability, or was he just head over heels in love with Sparrow? 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.
