A Love Story for the Ages

Jane Durrell introduces listeners to a fascinating author from Cincinnati. Vivian Kline is 83 years old, a widow, mother of three and grandmother of six. She was once and artist known for her enameling, and has written three books. Her newest, Love in the 40’s When Mail Came Twice a Day, is a deeply personal look at love. After 67 years in storage, she found a box of love letters from when she was 19 and her soon-to-be husband Danny was 26. They lived 80 miles apart and phone calls were prohibitively expensive, so they wrote letters… not only proclaiming their love for one another, but with references to life during those war years.
