Letters From Lea
When twenty-eight year old Lea Mahy is hospitalized miles away from home in October 1932, she maintains a connection with family by writing letters to her husband and mother. What transpires is a heart-wrenching account of a young wife and mother yearning to be with her family once again.
Set in rural Manitoba during the depression, this story will steer you through the emotions that Lea felt all those years ago. At times you will laugh, and at other times you will shed a tear. Throughout the story, you will be captivated, wondering what poignant detail will be revealed next.
Based on actual letters written in early 1930’s, this fictionalized story is filled with tales of love, loneliness and heartache.
