Some people are worth putting pen to paper.
Edie Moreau leaves her native Louisiana for the Flatirons of Boulder, Colorado and the promise of a graduate degree. She is prepared for all that graduate school has to throw at her, that is until she lays eyes on her American Novel professor.
Dr. James Foster is an Ivy League educated Hemingway scholar who lectures in suits as fancy as his degrees. As tall as he is aloof, he commands attention, both in and out of the classroom. His initially professional relationship with Edie blooms when he is named her thesis director. Over numerous cups of coffee, the academics immerse themselves in fictional romance, but are soon ensnared in their own drama.
Frustrated by the confines of his role as her professor, but unable to resist the balm Edie is to his otherwise chaotic life, Dr. Foster begins sending Edie letters, beautifully handwritten, increasingly personal letters, letters to which she responds. Their curious linguistic dance intensifies with the Boulder winter as Edie continues to unmask the enigmatic Dr. Foster, but can their relationship exist outside of hushed meetings over coffee and a campus mail affair?
A book for book lovers, Dear Miss Moreau is a classic story of forbidden love that unfolds in the pages of the letters Edie and Dr. Foster exchange.
