There are 2 letters, one from a "spotted bride", the other for her husband. Instead of going paragraph by paragraph and inserting commentary, I am going to type up the letters exactly how they appear in the book, and then talk about each one.I'm going to be honest, I had a hard, hard time writing this post, because it echoed my experience so … [Read more...]
