Before email or Facetime, Sylvia, a 15-year-old girl living in the Bronx, connected with a pen pal named Claudia, from Lyon, France. Their writings to one another, starting when they were teenagers and ending 6 decades later, preserve a precious time in the past, while inspiring generations of the future.
This is the heart-warming book based on the packet of letters treasured and saved by the French pen pal from her American friend. In this moving memoir, the reader is taken on a journey of discovery with two teenagers as they experience food and housing shortages during World War II, the early Hollywood film industry, an exchange of magazines, recipes, and poetry, and descriptions of their lives and loves over a 60-year period in the 20th century.
Soulmates & Strangers takes the reader on an intimate journey of two soulmates who first connected as teens and remained kindred spirits for the rest of their lives.
