Kristie Leigh Maguire reads from You've Got Mail from Japan

Author Kristie Leigh Maguire reads from her latest release, You've Got Mail from Japan, at The Spinning Wheel.

Margie and Sandy, two American expatriate women, meet and become friends while living in Saudi Arabia. After their husbands’ assignments in Saudi Arabia were completed, both women returned to their homes in the United States: Margie to Nevada and Sandy to Texas. Margie soon accompanies her husband on to his next assignment to Japan while Sandy remains at home surrounded by her family and friends.

Some things are very private—diaries, phone calls, letters, and emails between friends. You’ve Got Mail from Japan lifts that veil of privacy. The friendship between these two women shines from the pages and you feel as if you have eavesdropped on a private conversation, but accidentally, and then they smile at you and welcome you into their circle of friendship.

You’ve Got Mail from Japan consists of actual excerpts of emails between Margie and Sandy as they were written, with all the ‘warts’ and misspellings. The writing is real and down to earth, as only emails between good friends can be.

Come along and follow their incredible journey.
