Overview

No one can resist a love letter

Love letters are largely a lost and forgotten art. Not long ago suitors used the written word to work magic, and people were swept off their feet by a sweet, sincere note. How to Write a Love Letter teaches us, once again, how to reinvent this most meaningful of arts.

In today's rushed, individualistic society, love letters are more potent than ever before. They embody and convey the mysterious, the unexpected, and the most utterly thoughtful. A love letter can be anything--from a brisk, casual E-mail asking a love interest to coffee to a handwritten marriage proposal that will serve as a family treasure always. Fun, flirtatious, intimate, provocative--a love letter can be any and all of these things. Even the simplest letter can cause a stir.

Barrie Dolnick and Donald Baack have collected a wide range of letters--from old family keepsakes to casual and proper office E-mails. The authors demonstrate and explain, to both women and men, that writing a love letter is about turning sincere affection or intrigue into a unique, cherishable gesture, no matter how small the occasion or how short and uncomplicated the note.

Whether you're shy and have trouble expressing your feelings face to face, or you're a romantic at heart who wants to learn more effective ways to communicate, How to Write a Love Letter is your ultimate inspiration and guide. Go ahead. Fan the flames of a fledgling romance, or tell your husband of forty years that you still adore him as much as you did the day you first married him. Words are sexy, romantic, and wondrous. Letters are legacies. Learn the art today, and improve your life.


Julie,
My life is starting to become different, even if my days seem the same. And I must confess that it's you who has changed my outlook. You have opened my eyes to some amazing new possibilities. Your touch is so gentle, your kisses are so delicious, and your body is soft when it presses against me. I will forever be filled with a new sense of wonder and joy, because you have shared these things with me.

I must confess that in some ways I feel inadequate. Can I match your gentleness? Can I give any feeling as warm and secure as the one you have bestowed on me? You have chosen to show me such strong passion combined with such sweet affection, and I can only hope you feel a glimpse of the same from me.

Our time together is very special. There are very few moments that a man knows will linger with him for the rest of his life, and you have already given me many. Thank you for being such an extraordinary part of my life. I hope we will continue this journey together for a long time to come.
John

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Shy about revealing your true feelings to that special person? Then a heartfelt letter is a great way to declare your intentions! Whether you and your partner are longtime lovers or you are hoping to embark on a new relationship, these books will make Valentine's Day -- and every day -- a memorable one.
From The Critics
Recommendation: ****

How To Write A Love Letter is a great book for novices, but it's also a pretty good refresher for those of us who been together a long time, too! My practically perfect spouse is an English teacher...I suggested he use this book next Valentine's Day in a writing exercise. Pick up this book from amazon or the next time you're in a bookstore. Use it and see if your love life doesn't heat up a notch or two. Enjoy!

    LOVED 'LOVE LETTERS'!

    I loved this book! It gives help you can really use about how to write a love letter. There are great examples, including notes you can send when you first meet someone, during courtship, when you know you're in love, etc. Includes what not to say, 'steamy' letters, and more. I especially liked the one to your children.
