However, I did find it interesting to learn that there really are, and have been, people who write letters to "Juliet" with the hope that "she" will bring them the love and happiness that they are seeking. There are many samples of letters included in the book--some of which are sad, some amusing, and some hopeful and romantic!
It's a great book for background information and the history of the Society of Juliet. These lovely people spend hours writing responses to the letters left at Juliet's house. They are like the "Dear Abby" of Verona! By the way, I did see the movie after reading the book...it was a charming concept of "what if" based on the tradition of these "love" letters.
