Dearest Ruth, How Are You?: Falling in Love through Letters during WWII
Selma Ruth Wolkow joins us to discuss her new book Dearest Ruth, How Are You?: Falling in Love through Letters during WWII.
Selma (Ruth) met Irv on a blind date shortly before he was deployed to Europe to fight in World War II. Through the course of a year, they corresponded, writing over 100 letters to each other. By the time he came home, they had fallen in love. This book expounds on the importance of words and the written language in developing a lasting relationship. We also get a birds eye view of an 18 year old fighting in WWII.
