Constant J. Mews, The Lost Love Letters ofHeloise and Abelard: Perceptions of Di . olkowski, 'Lost and Not Yet Found: Heloise, Abelard and the Epistolae.
This book examines a medieval text long neglected by most scholars. The Lost Love Letters of Heloise and Abelard looks at the earlier correspondence between these two famous individuals, revealing the emotions and intimate exchanges that occurred between them. The perspectives presented here are very different from the view related by Abelard in his "History of My Calamities," an account which provoked a much more famous exchange of letters between Heloise and Abelard after they had both entered religious life. Offering a full translation of the love letters along with a copy of the actual Latin text, Mews provides an in-depth analysis of the debate concerning the authenticity of the letters and look at the way in which the relationship between Heloise and Abelard has been perceived over the centuries. He also explores the political, literary, and religious contexts in which the two figures conducted their affair and offers new insights into Heloise as an astonishingly gifted writer, whose literary gifts were ultimately frustrated by the course of her relationship with her teacher.

Lisa Balamaro is an ambitious arts lawyer with a secret crush on her most intriguing client: former rodeo rider and reformed art forger, Tuck Mercer. In his newfound role as an expert in Old West artifacts, Tuck gains possession of the supposedly destroyed correspondence between Doc Holliday and his cousin and childhood sweetheart, Mattie—who would become Sister Mary Melanie of the Sisters of Mercy.
Given the unlikelihood the letters can ever be fully authenticated, Tuck retains Lisa on behalf of the letters’ owner, Rayella Vargas, to sell them on the black market. But the buyer Tuck finds, a duplicitous judge from the Tombstone area, has other, far more menacing ideas.
As Lisa works feverishly to make things right, Rayella secretly enlists her ex-marine boyfriend in a daring scheme of her own.
When the judge learns he’s been blindsided, he rallies a cadre of armed men for a deadly standoff reminiscent of the moment in history that made Doc famous: The Gunfight at the OK Corral....more

To Whom It May Concern: I want to start out by saying I'm saddened and sorry. This place of hurt and resentment we now find ourselves in now.
It came from the help of a complete stranger.
Her parents’ love story will live on with her forever, but 54-year-old Carol Cuttler is just now learning more about how the tale started.
“It’s a whole different side of them before they were parents and grandparents,” Carol told CBSN New York’s John Dias.
Both her parents died about a year ago, just five months apart, leaving her to sell their belongings.
“We had an estate sale because it was such a big job,” Carol said. “Along the way, these must have been placed in something we got rid of.”
What she’s referring to are 65 love letters. Her dad sent them to her mother in the 1950s, when he was in the Army, stationed in Japan and her mother was back in America in nursing school.
“My dearest Joan,” Carol read. “You look great angel, not just tonight, always.”
Carol had no idea that they wrote to one another so often.
“This puts a whole puzzle together that I never knew existed,” she said.
Her father wrote them during the infancy of their almost 70-year long love story. The ones her mother sent in return are still lost.
“Waiting, praying and hoping that time passes quickly, so I can come home to you,” Carol read.
All 65 letters are in mint condition, each one ending the same way, signed “Always, Don.”
“Had a big bark at times, but everyone always knew he had a great heart, and it shows in all these letters, definitely,” Carol said.
The reason why Carol now has her hands on these letters is Bonnie Hanlon, who found them inside an Asbury antique store, and used Ancestry.com to research the family.
“I was thrilled to find out that they got married and also found someone else was researching them,” Hanlon said.
That person was Carol, looking to find out more about her heritage. She never expected this.
“I am a teacher and always telling my students acts of kindness, and this is the ultimate act of kindness,” she said.
This time, spotlighting acts of love.
