Love letter - what phrase conjures up more intense feelings than that simple phrase? Most of us have received a love letter. Many of us have written a love letter. Some of those letters were tucked away in the bottom of a drawer. Others were ripped to shreds or destroyed in symbolic flames. Whatever their fate, the one characteristic all love letters share is their raw and intense honesty. When we are declaring our love to another, we are speaking straight from the heart. Such words are precious because they capture a true moment in time. Whether a love lasts or not, in that moment, those words are real and sincere.
Last year, when the talented women writers of Indie Chicks were thinking about the subject of their next anthology, Barbara Silkstone came up with the idea of a compilation of love letters. Immediately, all of the women responded with enthusiasm. But what kind of love letters should be included in this anthology? There are many kinds of love letters - sweet and innocent; frank and honest; torrid and steamy; or sad and full of regret. What type of letters should be included in such a book? They tossed around some ideas and eventually came up with this one - Lost Love Letters. These are the long-overdue love letters that were never written. The recipient might be a first love, a child, a parent, a favorite aunt, or the one that got away. The subject was wide open, and the instruction was simple - pour your heart out. And so they did.
Here is that collection. Be prepared to smile and remember your own loves. Be prepared to glimpse into the hearts of many women. Be prepared to cry.
And when you are finished, you just might want to write your own Lost Love Letter. The best time to share love is always now.
Letters from many best selling authors including: Barbara Silkstone, Cheryl Bradshaw, Cheryl Shireman, Christine Nolfi, Christy Hayes, Conseulo Saah-Baehr, Donna Fasano, Faith Mortimer, Georgina Young-Ellis, Gerry McCullough, Heather Marie Adkins, Karin Cox, Kat Flannery, Katherine Owen, Lia Fairchild, Linda Barton, Lisa Vandiver, Louise Voss, Lynn Hubbard, Mary Pat Hyland, Melissa Smith, Peg Brantley, Penelope Crowe, Sarah Woodbury, Shanon Grey, Sibel Hodge, and Tonya Kappes.

BORRRRRRRINGGGGGGG don't waste your $$$$
A series of short love letters by different authors, compiled into a novelette. Not worth reading. Very boring and very bad. AD
The title is deceiving. Yes, there were some live letters but mostly depressing letters not worth my of reading. Unfortunately I cannot unread some of what I have already read. Its a shame because it started out so promising.
A book of letters that should have been written but were not. From smiling to crying this book has it all. I am glad I picked it up, it is worth the read. I did not find it boring at all, may not be for everyone, but give it a shot.
