With no internet available in 1965, the girls in HELLO MYRMIDON, both on the brink of womanhood, are instead blessed with the freedom to express themselves through anonymous handwritten letters. The result is a heartfelt exchange that takes the reader back to the "good old days", when times were simpler and yet simultaneously rich with complexity. Miss Clough’s uniquely narrated story is both relatable and real, as she weaves this inspirational tale of two strangers, whose friendship is more real than anything seen on the internet today. Because the book is beautifully done inside and out, it would also make a gorgeous and meaningful conversation piece to grace anyone’s coffee table.
Hello Myrmidon is a beautifully woven tale which takes the reader on a journey of inner contemplation. Writing letters opens up the dialogue between two people who may have never shared their inner most thoughts if they had met in person. This book is reflective and joyful, and there are many things to learn from sharing it with your family.
HELLO MYRMIDON is not only a book but an experience that is worth going through. It made me realize that decisions do matter in our lives, and sometimes without our knowledge the smallest decisions make a lot of difference. I cannot thank you enough for this book, it touched me deeply.
I feel that this book would be valuable reading for any young person beginning to face life and make decisions on their own. I wish I had read such a book in my own youth! It is enjoyable and easy to read, not too preachy, and will make the reader think in a more positive way.
