Letters From the Heartland: Former 'Post & Mail' Writer Shares Grandparents' Letters in New Book

The written word has a special kind of power. It passes on information, records history, connects people who are distances apart and so much more. When a writing is truly special it connects with a person on an emotional level, and some writings even connect on a personal level.

Such is the story that led author Amy McVay Abbott to publish her most recent book “Always Carl, Letters from the heart and heartland.” The book tells the story of her grandparents through a series of letters written by her grandfather Carl Enz to her grandmother Lenore Hoard Enz.
