The story takes place quite a while ago. Long before a lot of us were born. The writer of the letters is Ed. He was studying medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and writing was second nature to him. He enjoyed the luxury of living on the Gulf Coast. He spent many an afternoon swimming and fishing . Several days a week dove and quail hunting on Bolivar Peninsula were not out of the ordinary for him. Sailing with his fraternity brothers was the usual Sunday afternoon outing. Ed was fond of a lady friend that came from Wortham,Texas. She always welcomed his company. He spoke of visiting Wanda on his rail trips to call on his mom in Dallas. His mother always enjoyed his visits. He wrote Wanda letters, described his activities and seemed to long for the day they could rendezxous. Their lives were busy and full with activity which made it almost impossible. Wanda ended up saving Ed's letters. These are the letters he wrote to her.

About the Author:

Karen Paysse Rowe was born in 1951 on Galveston island, Texas. She now resides in Central Texas where she raises Dorper sheep and is involved in wildlife conservation. She is the mother of four great adults who are the light of her life. Aside from family, her world is centered around travel, cooking, fun and laughter and a strong adoration for Jerry Lewis, who she believes encompasses all these things. In this book you will find love letters written by her father-in-law to one of his sweethearts in 1942. She kept these declarations of love for many years before passing them on to her after his death in 2002. Hope you enjoy this lost art of letterwriting
