Author Anne Emerson explores twenty-two letters written by her great-great-grandfather, Erastus Hopkins, to his daughters in the 1850’s and 1860’s. Buried for 150 years in the archives of the Massachusetts Historical Society, the letters became the driving force in the author’s quest to figure out who this forgotten man was. Along the way, they become a bridge for the author’s understanding of her own life story and her old New England family.
