The September Letters

eBook
A Vintage Shorts "Short Story Month" Original Selection

It starts out like any other dull day in a busy airport bar. James, the bartender, would much rather serve regulars at a local pub than cranky travelers. Katy and Colin have been involved in a longtime affair that comes to literal blows when he reveals that he hasn't kept his promise to leave his wife. Between some quick thinking by James and the kindness of an American couple, Jean and Maurice, the situation is diffused. And Jean's insistence that they all stay in touch sparks friendships that are maintained across the ocean. But after nearly a decade of writing annual letters, she reveals a secret that casts the events of that day in a whole new light...

The recent New York Times best seller, A Few of the Girls, is a collection of Maeve's beloved short stories that one reviewer called "reminiscent of a letter from an old friend." We are lucky that there are even more stories for her readers. In "The September Letters," never before published in the US, Maeve once again brings us into the lives of ordinary people where chance meetings have the potential to change lives.
An ebook short.
