Synopsis
Andrew and Melissa are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through the years. When Andy is off at war, Melissa marries, but her attachment to Andy remains strong and they continue to keep in touch. Eventually she and Andy do become briefly involved, but it is really too late for both of them. However Andy’s last letter, written to her mother, makes it eloquently clear how much they really meant, and gave to, each other over the years—physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be. What is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
The Characters
Andrew Makepeace Ladd III – Seems to have his life all mapped out. He is a Yale Graduate, excels at Law School and becomes a successful attorney. He is bright and sophisticated, but always retains an irrepressible sense of humor. He has a strong attachment to and love for Melissa
Melissa Gardner – She, too, is born to wealth. However, she is more of the irascible sort. She continuously flunks out of school, is extremely mischievous and doesn’t like to conform. To anything, especially to what is “expected” of her. She marries, divorces, drinks more than she should dabbles in art and gigolos. Throughout the years, the one thing she has maintained is her love for Andy.
