It has been over thirty years since Elaine has even thought about Brad, but today she receives a letter from him. It's an amazing occurrence and she begins to wonder what it could mean. Even her mother, a very spiritual person, felt that Brad and Elaine were destined to be together. They were, if anyone ever was, soul mates. But after separating and trying to stay close, life's path took them further apart until Elaine even began to feel that there was no such thing as eternal love. Her mother's reassurances seemed to fall on deaf ears and she resigned herself to live her life as best she could and keep searching for happiness. Now, out of nowhere, the letter arrives. After months of reading it, thinking, and agonizing, she decides she needs to act. It could be her one chance at spending eternity with her soul mate. Or will she find happiness in the existing relationship with her husband? Whatever choice she makes, today she decides to answer The Letter.
