It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more -- though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was -- lovely and amazing and deeply flawed -- can she begin to discover her own path in this stunning debut from Ava Dellaira, Love Letters to the Dead.

ALL PRAISE AND HONOR AND GLORY AND POWER AND MIGHT BE TO THE MOST HIGH GOD YHWH AND HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON YASHUA HAMASHIACH /JESUS CHRIST. Ketuvim Ahavah min YHWH (LOVE LETTERS FROM YHWH) was written through the guidance prompting and direction of THE HOLY SPIRIT. It was never my plan to write this book, but after much prayer and discussion the decision was made to consolidate these writings, which are the utterances of YAH that I have received and transcribed over the period of a year. It is my hope in putting these writings together that they may serve to help edify, comfort, encourage and strengthen the body and BRIDE of CHRIST as we wait longingly for HIS return when we are gathered together to meet him in the clouds. 16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 Before you begin to read these Love Letters I would like to explain exactly how they came into existence. December 31, 2010 New Year's Eve I had what seemed to be a dream in which I heard a voice speaking with me. The voice was that of a man which was calm and soothing to my ears. As He spoke it sounded as if He was in a hallway because the voice echoed and was at a distance. He told me that there would be floods of "multiple coastal cities" January 4th-6th. When I awoke I spoke to my wife about the dream I had and what the voice said. This was a strange occurrence for me, something I had NEVER experienced before. We both kind of shrugged it off and continued our day. I dropped my wife off to work that morning as usual and drove back home. At around 11am my wife called me and exclaimed, with a sense of urgency, fright and bewilderment "turn on the news!" She had just read a story in the paper about a flood.

For fans of Nina George, Elena Ferrante, and Valentina Cebeni, a charming, uplifting novel about a man who sets out to fulfil his dead wife’s last wish. Julien Azouly, the famous French writer of beautiful romance novels, has stopped believing in love. When his beloved wife, Hélène, dies at the age of thirty-three, leaving him alone to raise their young son, Arthur, he is so devastated that he loses faith in the happier side of life—and along with that his ability to write. But Hélène was clever. Before her death, she made her husband promise to write her thirty-three letters, one for each year of her life. Six months after the funeral, Julien finds himself standing in the most famous cemetery in Paris, the painful first letter in his hand. Little does he know that something strange—and wonderful—is about to happen. An ode to love, Paris, and joie de vivre, Love Letters from Montmartre brings the reader down narrow streets, past the cozy red bistro on Rue Gabrielle, and all the way to Montmartre cemetery with its beautiful stone angels, where we will discover the truth we all hope to find: that love is real, that miracles can happen and that—most of all—it’s never too late to rediscover your dreams. Empathetic and wise, this is the deeply profound yet very human story of a man who finds love just when he thinks all is lost.

What I thought was my biggest fear was now staring me right in the face! I sat in a chair listening as the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) agents presented their case against me. They showed me pictures of me having meetings with all of my contacts. They even had voice recordings of some of the meetings I had attended. As I looked at the pictures, my only thought was that all these people were now dead! I was shocked when they did not arrest me. After presenting their case against me, they gave me one choice: "Leave Washington, DC, within forty-eight hours, and we will drop all the charges we have against you. If you are here after forty-eight hours, you will be arrested." I learned two things in that meeting. They didn't want me in jail, they wanted me dead like the others. I knew just how long it would be before it happened; fourty-eight hours. I felt like a caged animal with no way out. In the early 1970s during the Vietnam War, many young men returned home addicted to heroin. Methadone clinics were put in place in most major cities around the county to treat their addiction, but the addicts were refusing treatment at the Methadone clinics. City and government officials were feeling helpless in their efforts to combat this problem. This book tells how they addressed the problem, and why I found myself involved in this conspiracy without knowing I was.

To Jane Welsh Carlyle love letters were 'paper kisses', to Mary Wordsworth the 'beating of thy inmost heart upon paper'. Passion, longing, the desolation of unrequited love or the end of an affair are some of the consuming emotions in this ravishing compendium which reveals the enduring power of the love affair to produce ardent and often unguarded personal writing. From Emily Dickinson to Anais Nin, Anne Boleyn to the Empress Josephine, a miner's wife writing to her dead husband to prisoners of war in a Russian jail writing to friends and family, as well as contemporary figures such as Winnie Mandela and poets Suniti Namjoshi and Gillian Hanscombe, all wrote marvellous, highly charged love letters. With the promise of intimate glimpses into the writers' hearts, this anthology delivers Virginia Woolf at her wittiest, Colette in ardent and dreamy mood, Simone de Beauvoir at her most private and provocative, and many others. 'As we head down the super-highway of email and fax, we shall all need instruction in this old-fashioned art' Aisling Foster, TLS
