Love Letters

Content Tools

How does a Jewish book publisher raised in New York end up with a South Indian doctor from a strict Brahmin family? He places an ad in an Indian newspaper for an arranged marriage, of course. So began the rich, epistolary love affair of Ehud and Vatsala Sperling, who recently celebrated their seventh anniversary. The Sperlings recount the unlikely love story in A Marriage Made in Heaven: A Love Story in Letters (Ten Speed Press), a collection of more than 60 letters they exchanged during the intercontinental courtship.
