In Sex in the City, Carrie Bradshaw reads a book called “Love Letters of Great Men” to Mr. Big. Apparently there was huge interest in purchasing this book. Problem is that the book was made up. Fortunately for publisher Macmillan, there is now. It will be publishing an anthology of love letters from famous men such as Beethoven, Henry VIII, and Prince Rainier of Monaco.
The best epistolary romance in history will always be the letters between John and Abigail Adams. They exchanged over 1,100 letters beginning with their courtship in 1762 and ending around 1801. I love epistolary romances and one of my favorites is Connie Brockway’s My Dearest Enemy.
