Did ya’ miss me last week?
Notice anything different about the blog that might indicate why I didn’t write a column for The Christian Home Magazine?
Well, if you read via feedburner or email, you might not have noticed the new look for the blog. With the transfer happening, I took a short vacation from posting so things hopefully wouldn’t be lost in transition.
But, I’m back now!
A month or so ago, I watched a cute, romantic film. And, I thought I’d share about it this week in my column.
Letters to Juliet ties the long love affair many have with Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to the modern day.
While on a trip with her boyfriend/fiance, aspiring writer Sophie discovers a wall in the town of Verona where women leave letters to the famed Juliet in hopes of having their aching hearts soothed. Not only do the women leave letters, but she discovers another woman comes along and collect them all for a group of ladies to write responses. Intrigued, she joins their cause by responding to a 50 year old letter found tucked behind a brick.
It is her response to that letter that starts her on a journey which will have her realizing what she thought was her path in life and source of love is NOT where she should be.
All in all, this was a nice story. There are no steamy sex scenes that some romance films consider crucial, which in turn gave the film its PG rating. Yet, there is tension a plenty as Sophie is drawn towards the grandson of the letter’s author. I also adored the gorgeous scenery as the trio make their way across part of Italy in search of a long-lost love.
