A Marriage Made in Heaven
A Marriage Made in Heaven, by Vatsala and Ehud Sperling, A Love Story in Letters.

Includes more than 60 letters written between the authors during their courtship - Lavishly illustrated with over 100 full-color photographs, including photographs from the traditional wedding ceremony in South India.

"Through our letters we know each other more deeply than people who live together for over half a century."
"You quite literally wrote yourself into my life."

Disillusioned with love in the western world, a well-known American book publisher chooses a wildly unorthodox path: advertising in an Indian newspaper for an arranged marriage. A successful, highly educated Tamil Brahmin woman breaks her own culture's tradition and sends him a letter, launching this book's remarkable correspondence. What begins as an epistolary evaluation of compatibility quickly gives way to a yearlong sharing of hearts and minds that neither of these lovers could have predicted. Along the way, they raise as many questions as they answer: How will a child of the '60s manage without physical intimacy before marriage?

How will a strict Brahmin family react to a Jewish man raised in New York? How can two strong, independent, and active people negotiate the contemporary minefields of gender roles, career, parenthood, desire, spirituality, and religion before they even meet? Deliciously funny and profoundly moving, this intercontinental, intercultural, interfaith love story may just change how you view relationships.
