Honesdale, Pa. : Boyds Mills
started out as a school assignment. The war was on in Europe and
the students were assigned to write to a soldier. Eleanor's letter
ended up with Robert Bettencourt, a young soldier stationed in New York
City while being trained as a translator. Through the next few months,
the letters become more and more frequent and Eleanor finds herself falling
in love with Robert. She thinks of him all the time and fantacizes
that he will show up in Masssachusetts someday to find Eleanor. He
will see her and maybe be shocked for a moment. But then it will
be OK. He will see her for who she is. He wouldn't see her
the way others did. But she knows it is all a fantasy. When
he finds out the truth about her, she just feels he'll turn away just like
everyone else does. What is the secret that she is keeping from Robert?
How will he react when he finds out?
