He was a poor farmer living a simple country life marked with toil and missing the luxuries of his time; she was a young, but strong, Christian woman who lived life to the fullest in a nearby town. Eight miles separated them, but the words they expressed through love letters made the distance seem like nothing at all.
In his new book, When Harry Met Lila, author Gordon Smith recounts enduring life lessons about love, respect and genuine devotion to God’s will shared between his grandparents in their letters to one another.
What transpired was a relationship via the post; letters of frustration, celebration, sorrow, and comfort; reflections on life, death, friendship, and love. More than that, what lives and breathes in and through this correspondence is the very spirit of a Holy God, whose presence and purpose is as significant today as it was then.
Interspersed within the letters, Gordon offers a personal commentary whose voice echoes the many life lessons which continue to guide him towards a strong and lasting marriage. Through his grandparents’ correspondence (more from Harry than Lila), Gordon discovers a deeper 
understanding of grief, compassion, patience, and handling the hardships and frustrations of a long distance relationship.
Choosing to love is more than mere labor: it’s the law…God’s law…. Harry and Lila knew God’s law, received its blessing, believed in its power, and lived with a purpose that would inspire a family for generations. Included within the book, inspired poetry from the author further illuminates the love story shared by his grandparents and its indelible mark upon his mind and heart.
They may have been simple people living an ordinary life, but their faith-filled examples left a legacy of love that will last forever.
