The legend of Juliet has endured for centuries. In the Italian city of Verona, Juliet's house, now a museum, draws thousands of visitors every year, as well as thousands of letters - addressed to Juliet - from nearly every country in the world. The writers are young, old, and in between, and they pour out their hearts to Juliet, seeking guidance in love. This is the story of Juliet, her house, the letters, and of the man who, in the late 1930s, began to answer them. This act of compassion has continued into the new century: today, a staff of 'secretaries to Juliet' translate, archive, and answer 4,000 letters a year. This story has never been published in book form. Along with selected letters and replies, historical narrative, and illustrative material, "Letters to Juliet" will be a magical, romantic read, and a great gift.
