Mary & Me: Discussion Questions
"A book about the joy of letters is always a cause for celebration, and when it is also a book about the incomparable consolations of friendship—expressed through letters—the celebration is even greater. Mary & Me offers beautiful proof that there is no better demonstration of true friendship than through letters; through shared confidences that address our sorrows, our joys, and our need of each other."
—Nina Sankovitch, bestselling author of Tolstoy and the Purple Chair and Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Celebrating the Joys of Letterwriting
“Mary Kenyon is one of those rare women who walked into my world and became an instant lifelong friend. She exudes love of family, faith, integrity, and beauty, and those things shine in her writing and relationships. Mary & Me: A Lasting Link Through Ink, co-written with Mary Jedlicka Humston, offers rich wisdom about the art of friendship and the beauty of commitment that goes beyond the limits of time and space and how words enrich us, give us life, and bond our spirits and souls.”
—Shelly Beach, Christy Award-winning author of twelve books and co-author of Love Letters from the Edge
"This book is a pure tribute to friendship, letter writing, and, most of all, love. The shared experiences of loss, faith, and letting go between Mary and Mary aren't just inspiring—they're enough to push you out of your own comfort zone to be a little braver today. No doubt, this is the sort of story that will make you want to try harder, love people better, hold the good ones in your life tighter, and leave no collection of words left unsaid. In short, this book captures the real stuff of life. The real stuff."
