Three Minutes in the Front Hallway: Love Letters from the Forgotten War

by John Warhol

This is a love story from a simpler era, a lifetime before emails, texting, and tweeting. A time when the fastest way to stay in touch was with paper, ink, and air mail.

A week after he got engaged, a young private was deployed to the other side of the world and wrote home to his fiancé each day, sometimes twice a day. He talked about the war and their plans for a future together. She saved all his letters and kept them in a box with her scrapbook of every date they had together. When the war ended, they got married, cared for each other in sickness and health, and were inseparable for more than 50 years. All that time, the box remained hidden in the attic under the eaves. After death took them both, the letters and scrapbook once again saw the light of day. Faded and brittle with age, they preserved a vision of life and courtship exactly as it was.

This book is a glimpse into the lives of two very special people, as told through the hand written letters and hand-pasted images of a couple who were destined to live their lives together. Their words and pictures will be familiar to everyone in a relationship, especially those kept apart by military duty or civilian careers.
