Mommy and Daddy’s Love Letters; A true story from the 1950s
by Cal Harrop
If you could go back in time and experience your parents or grandparents falling in love would you? If you could go back in time and experience how life was before computers, the internet or cell phones would you? If you could go back in time and meet people that you have only heard about would you? “Mommy and Daddy’s Love Letters, A true story from the 1950s”, contains letters written by the author's Mother and Father to each other during their courtship in 1951 and 1952. Marie worked as a housekeeper in Kansas City for the founders of the Winstead's chain of restaurants and Walter was a farm hand near Quincy, Missouri. This is a small community close to where Marie grew up. While the relationship between Marie and Walter along with the people around them is the main theme of the book, many ways of life that existed in the 1950s and no longer exist today are mentioned and explained. The author has also mentioned some historical events of 1951 and 1952 that are not well known that should be of interest to people interested in life in the United States in 1951 and 1952. The book is a nonfiction romance combined with the cultural history of Missouri. It should appeal to older readers, readers in rural areas, readers in Missouri (especially in Kansas City) and readers interested in everyday life in the United States in 1951 and 1952. The book contains several vintage photographs and extensive weather data recorded in Kansas City, Missouri in 1951 and 1952.
