Rivertrout.com proudly introduces a new addition to its library of letters: Beth Raven's "A Woman's Song," a heartfelt missive that explores the causes of, and seeks a reconciliation to, childhood's dark hours and adulthood's solipsism. In the absence of a definitive answer, chance takes center stage.
"Perhaps the lament was not a father-song. Perhaps it was the lament of a girl giving up that very song. Perhaps it was a last dance with the man who could never be what I know you already are," Ms. Raven writes from New Hampshire.
A letter of hope, "A Woman's Song" is filed under Fin.
This is Rivertrout.com. Our goal is to bring together people who nurture a passion for an old, and yet exquisite, form of literature: The writing of letters.
