Item description for An Uncommon Correspondence: An East-West Conversation on Frienship, Intimacy and Love by Ivy George & Margaret Masson...

This is a collection of letters between two women whose friendship spans the globe and cuts through the differing traditions of East and West. College professors from England and India, each woman faces her own cultural "danger": in the West, the roller-coaster search for romantic love, and in the East, the apparent prison and spiritual death of arranged marriage. Taken from correspondence during a year in which the Indian woman considers an arranged marriage, the authors explore the myths of romantic love, the implications of courtship, the role of female friendship, and possibility of platonic friendships, alternatives for intimacy, and how the romantic quest echoes the spiritual quest. Thought-provoking and engaging, the letters have the insight of sociological research and the liveliness of an all-night gab fest.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Uncommon Correspondence: An East-West Conversation on Frienship, Intimacy and Love?

A thought-provoking book  Dec 31, 2003
This book presents what may be for many Westerners some new perspectives on relationships (and on the lack thereof). The conversation between the two women and allows us to follow along as their thinking develops and as their opinions and priorities change. An important book for anyone committed to living as a healthy, Christian adult, whether single or married.
The shape of love in two cultures  Aug 6, 1999
Two women, Ivy from India and Margaret from England meet atchurch in the US. They become the closest of friends, and laterregular correspondents. Their exploration of the meaning of love as it plays out in their lives will resonate in the minds of many women. What of fantasies influenced by romance novels? Can one love the person chosen by others in an arranged marriage? Will love overcome culture? What's wrong with being single? The women are not lesbians, nor is there any heavy breathing. Just good, decent, highly-educated women who want fulfilling lives.
