A Letter For Adorabella
Michael F. Corriere
When Adorabella states: "If love denied can break a heart, perhaps love received can mend it," she is contemplating the eternal question of life: where does happiness lie? Abandoned by her mother, rejected by her fiancé, fragile, insecure and brokenhearted, she looks to love to reveal the answer. But love's path is a labyrinth of twists and turns; rarely is the path straight and true. Two men seek her love and she must make a choice. Is it Abbott, the speech therapist from a small town in Texas, or Marcus, the worldly stock broker from the city who will be "the one" to heal her broken heart.
Abbott loves Adorabella. Her happiness is his only concern. He tells her to follow her heart, wherever that may lead. Yet there is so much more he wants to tell her. "Perhaps I can write what I can not say," he says. A love letter is written, but should it be given? He does not know. He wants to express to her what is deepest within his heart. He wants her to know she is worthy of love. "Let me give her this gift," he says, "a final gift of selfless love; and let the giving of this gift heal my broken heart." Abbott too asks where does happiness lie and looks to love to reveal the answer.
