Read full description of the books Sealed with a Kiss: An American Love Story in Letters:In 1957, Bob Zielsdorf is thirteen and living an ordinary middle-class suburban existence in York, Pennsylvania. On a trip to Massachusetts to visit a friend, he meets fourteen-year-old Fran Jordan. Though they spend less than an hour together (admittedly, an hour that includes some innocent kissing, thanks to a local variation on Spin the Bottle), they agree to write. Remarkably, they do, beginning a correspondence that will last for eight years, encompass hundreds of letters, and end with an enduring marriage. Drawn from their collection of over four hundred perfectly preserved personal letters, Sealed with a Kiss is at once a coming-of-age story, a romance, and a glimpse of an America poised on the brink of change. Anyone who remembers having a pen pal, scribbling envelopes with codes like S.W.A.K, or even just falling in love will recognize themselves in its story-and savor its vision of not just a unique moment in time, but also a timeless love.
Read information about the authorBob Zielsdorf and Fran Jordan met in 1957, and soon thereafter began the exchange of over 400 letters excerpted in Sealed with a Kiss. The couple married in 1965; today they have five children and ten grandchildren and live in Vero Beach, FL. Bob was born in Milwaukee and raised there, in Springfield, OH, and in York, PA. Now retired, he was the longtime CEO of The Peerless Group in Sidney, OH. He remains active on corporate boards and in a variety of non-profit and charitable institutions. Favorite pastimes include golf, fly fishing, boating, and shooting (of the sport rather than the criminal variety). Fran, who contributed the "Last Word" section of Sealed with a Kiss--as well, of course, of half of its letters--was born and raised in Andover, MA. A graduate of Lake Erie College, she taught school for a number of years, principally college preparatory English; she enjoys cooking and yoga, and has been active in community and charitable service. Bob and Fran will celebrate their 49th anniversary in 2014, a testament to the power of letter-writing in building an enduring relationship!
