Well, not exactly. Have you seen the movie Sex in the City? If you have, you probably saw that scene where Carrie is in bed reading Love Letters of Great Men. I never had the intention of buying it, but when I saw Love Letters II I thought why not & I bought it.
It’s been lying on my bedside table for a long while now & last night I thought it was time to pick it up and start reading it. It’s such an interesting book. Love Letters II is a book filled with romantic love letters of woman (known & unknown) throughout history. There are love letters written by Anne Boleyn, queen Victoria, Emily Dickinson etc. The letters are filled with compassion, secrets, hopes & longings. They take you away for a little while to another world where Internet did not exist & where writing a letter was the most common thing to do if you needed to contact or tell something to someone. My favourite letter is the letter written by Anne Boleyn. She asks for forgiveness, even though she feels like she didn’t do anything wrong. And even after Henry, her husband, put her in jail & feels like she should be punished for what she did, she still loves him. I love that letter!
Love Letters II is a beautiful collection that every romantic person should have on her or his bedside table. And now I need Love Letters of Great Men.
