The Traveling Salesman, The Young Electrician and the Youngish girl meet on a train from Halifax to Boston and discuss life, love, and indiscreet letters. I don't know if I can convey quite how cute this is, but I've just reread it after reading it for the first time about a year ago, and I have no doubt I'll be reading it again sometimeMore in-depth review at
Hey it was free on kindle and the reviews were so positive I thought why not. So glad I read it!!! The characters are incredibly well developed and they all have wonderful surprising stories. Abbott is another of those lost authors worth discovering.
What a great little story. Times may change but human nature doesn't. I wish the story continued!
It takes maybe an hour to read it, but it fully describes entire people's lives. The words stay with you long after finishing the story.Also, written in a beautiful language, full of witty metaphors that make the text, although short, full of substance.I'm so glad I gave it a try.
AN INDISCREET LETTER by Eleanor Hallowell Abbott was published in 1915. It is a brief read...maybe an hour or so in duration...and is a sweet, delightful tale about three strangers who meet and converse on a train. The conversation predominantly takes place between the Traveling Salesman and the Youngish Girl. Yet the description of the Young Electrician is the most captivating and colorful of the three. If a reader solely reads the book for Abbott's character descriptions alone, this little nugget is worth a read.
