Excerpt

been a source of great wonder to me how certain very plain people of my acquaintance could possibly think themselves handsome. But I see it all now! Can you not, however, leave the beauty out, and give me some sort of an idea-about yourself for my imagination to work upon?"

"Certainly!" replied Nattie, with a mischievous twinkle in her eye that "C" knew not of. "Imagine, if you please, a tall young man, with--"

"C" "broke" quickly, saying,

"Oh, no! You cannot deceive me in that way! Under protest I accept the height, but spurn the sex!"

"Why, you do not suppose I am a lady, do you?" queried Nattie.

"I am quite positive you are. There is a certain difference in the 'sending,' of a lady and gentleman, that I have learned to distinguish. Can you truly say I am wrong?"

Well before Internet chat rooms -- or the Internet itself -- was ever thought of, long-distance romance between people who'd never met existed. (I had one myself, through the mails, at age 15. Alas, it became a dead letter.)

In this case, two telegraph operators exchange rapid-fire repartee in Morse code. As their courting conversation can be heard by all the other operators on the wire, a modern-day analogy might be romance via Twitter. Ultimately, the two operators meet, but there are many crosses and breaks before they connect.

Charming.

*****

This book is about Nattie and Clem(or N. and C.)and their "Wired Love".They are both telegraph operators and they meet over "the wire".It reminds me of internet chatting in as they never see each other at first .It's a little predictable but thouraghly enjoyable.A 5 star read.
