by Trudy Gordon
More than four decades ago, Trudy Gordon took a vacation in Lugano, Switzerland, and met a man who would change her life forever. Mr. Maceo, a Milanese businessman, and Trudy, an American, met by coincidence when they shared the same hotel in 1957. She was 23 years his junior. A passionate love affair ensued, even though both were married and oceans separated them.
Drawn together despite the odds, Trudy and Mr. Maceo kept in touch and met each other once a year in Crans Sur Sierre, Switzerland, a classy winter resort, to rekindle their desire for one another. Thatís Amore: Letters of Love combines letters written back and forth over a period of about ten years, piecing together their often tumultuous relationship and illuminating their obvious care and concern for one another as friends, lovers, and kindred souls.
