Book Signing of “The Mailbox of the Kindred Spirit” Book Reading and Signing on Saturday, Feb 15th from 11am-1pm at Tybrisa Books.
The Mailbox of the Kindred Spirit is real. It is the inspiration for LB’s story about Ernie and Melody who meet at a young age at a Golf Club in the mountains of North Carolina where he works and where her mother works. They grow up and grow apart and she moves to Ocean Isle Beach. Eventually he comes to a place where he tries to connect with her again. The mailbox plays an important part in their story. The mailbox is set up beyond almost the last set of sand dunes. It’s tucked away behind one. There’s a couple of benches where you can sit and watch the fishing boats or the tides roll in and out. The first time she went to the mailbox it was so late it got dark. It was quite the moving experience.
