La Grange Park resident enjoys a friendship forged through mail
LA GRANGE PARK — In her latest novel, La Grange Park resident Loretta Nyhan shares the stories of Rita Vincenzo and Glory Whitehall, two women struggling with everyday life while their husbands are away fighting in World War II.
The novel, “I’ll Be Seeing You,” was written by Nyhan, 42, and Suzanne Hayes of New Haven, Conn. Each author assumed the persona of one of the women and wrote it in her voice. Nyhan became Rita, an Iowa woman with a love of gardening, while Hayes assumed the role of Glory, a young New England woman.
Nyhan and Hayes wrote to each other in character throughout the writing process. Nyhan said Hayes got the ball rolling in an email with “Dear Rita” in the subject line.
