Silver Pages on the Lawn : A Student Love Story of the Depression Years of the 1930s

By: Nora Lourie Percival
BOOK REVIEW
I enjoyed Nora Lourie Percival’s memoir of college life in the 1930′s and her account of finding true love that endures many hardships. The couple are forced to keep their love a secret; Nora’s Jewish father does not approve of her relationship with a Gentile. The stress of the couples’ lives, attending college, finding places to meet, and often living miles apart, leave Nora dealing with severe bouts of anemia and Herman, her lover, with severe bouts of depression.
The couple are forced to communicate by writing letters to each other. Herman, who is a poet, writes dramatic and poetic letters. Nora often finds herself having to keep Herman’s spirit up through her letters. Herman has many doubts, but Nora is determined that their love will carry them through the hardships and they would have a life together, once she graduates college.
‘Silver Pages on the Lawn’ is based on the couples’ letters to each other. Nora Lourie Percival writes a poignant story of love and shares her precious letters with the world.
I recommend this book to all readers of history, a good love story, and the one’s who enjoy reading memoirs.

Nora Lourie Percival was born just after World War I in Samara on the Volga River in Russia. The revolution drove her father out of the country to safety, and her family lived through a civil war and a famine. These tribulations were recorded in “Weather of the Heart,” her first memoir. In 1922, the family was reunited in New York, where Nora grew up. The author’s career has been largely in the editorial field. She has worked for Random House, the American Management Association, and Barnard College. Now long retired, she is still writing and working as a freelance editor. An only child, she has raised five children and now has eleven grandchildren. She lives in the mountains of North Carolina, where she enjoys the natural beauty and is inspired by the literary renaissance in the South.

Description: Silver Pages on the Lawn is the true story of student lovers and their star-crossed romance that endures parental disapproval as well as the want of time, money, and privacy. To bridge long separations, they make love by words alone. Their passionate, eloquent letters, poignant and poetic, are the heart of this memoir and bring to life the troubled era in which their story takes place—the lean days of the Great Depression, war clouds over Europe, and the literary renaissance of which these aspiring writers were part, form the heart of their history.

    Silver Pages on the Lawn paints a dramatic picture of the difficult years they lived through and of the steadfast love that survived it all and carried them through to the life they dreamed of.
