Civil War Letters: I'll be reading letters from Love Me Forever at Lady Jane's OC Salon by Jina Bacarr





When was the last time you wrote a letter?

No, not email…

Or text.

Or a bunch of acronyms that no one can figure out without a dictionary.

I mean, put pen to paper and wrote out the words…one by one.

Hmm…I didn’t hear anything. You’re not alone. Unfortunately the practice of letter writing is a lost art, but there’s something about a letter no email can take replace.

The crisp, crinkly paper.

The lingering scent of the writer’s perfume.

The personal style of every curved letter, dot and period, and question mark. The hidden message in their writing style that only you can see.

Especially during wartime.

Those letters are precious…the last letter from a soldier to his sweetheart is the epitome of love eternal…which is why I’ll be reading letters from LOVE ME FOREVER exchanged between my heroine and her Union Army major at Lady Jane’s Salon on Sunday, January 8, 2017 at the Ripped Bodice Bookstore in Culver City, California. I’ll be joined by other authors and the program starts at 4 p.m.

I’m grabbing my parasol and dancing around in my hoopskirt, getting ready to read from the letters of my time-traveling heroine and the handsome major she’s fallen in love with…

But can never have…

Best,
Jina

LOVE ME FOREVER

She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
And time.
