Author Judith Lovell Reveals PAPA'S LETTERS

By: Jul. 12, 2013

This June marked the eighth anniversary of National Caribbean American Heritage Month, a time for America to remember that Caribbean immigrants helped shape the United States. One of these immigrants, David Hurd, recorded his experiences through multiple handwritten letters to his long-distance pen pal love. These letters have been collected by his granddaughter, Judith C. Lovell, in the new book, Papa's Letters: Love via First Class Male.

Papa's Letters is a book filled with the honesty and charm of private letters, along with a look into life in 20th century America for immigrants. Through family accounts, photographs and the letters, readers follow the remarkable international relationship between Lovell's grandparents from the beginning to the present.

This book provides readers with an interesting look into the life of immigrants - in particular Caribbean immigrants - in bustling New York City. Some of the letters detail life in the workforce, living arrangements and personal struggles of a new environment.

"I wrote this book to be a gift to the world, so that everyone can share in this extraordinary true story of love," said Lovell. "It is a tribute to family, my grandfather's experiences as an immigrant, and his enduring words of wisdom."

Readers with an interest in history, immigration or romance will find Papa's Letters to be a revealing look into one man's challenge to create a better life in Brooklyn, New York, through hard work and love.
