Littleton Town ‘A Love Letter in Disguise’ is a fiction work about a young woman and a young man who grow up in a cluster of small towns that create for them a set of nostalgic, romantic memories as they go through a series of challenges in life both mutually and separately. The story is primarily told through the eyes of Gabriel Stands and Hope Valentine. As this tale progresses Hope and Gabriel's lives are incessantly interrupted but their paths continuously cross. Comedy, tragedy, and romance flow seamlessly from chapter to chapter showing the many different qualities and traits these two characters exude. Everything from Hopes comical clumsiness to Gabriel’s intense passions as well as a terrible tragedy that cause both of them a major stumbling block for many years to come.
Hopes problem takes a turn for the worst during one of her catatonic episodes when she sees an image of herself splitting in two. One of these images walks away and never comes back and what she is left with when she comes out of her dream state no one quite recognizes. Gabriel even notices a change in one of Hopes physical features.
The day of the trial does not go well and her memory of the account completely fails her via another episode. The next time she sees Gabriel in the hallways at school she, still partially in a state of disorder, brings up a promise Gabriel made on the day Hope broke up with him claiming him to have come up short on this promise. Gabriel’s emotions go through a somersault of change and he almost commits an action he would regret forever but still carries the guilt of it for a very long time.
When Gabriel finally meets defeat in his mission to help the one he loves he moves far away to pursue various ventures only to find himself still empty inside never meeting anyone else or finding any occupation that could fill that void like Hope. He finds Hope on a people searching website and writes to her. A dialogue reopens between the two after 17 years of silence. Is she pleased to hear from him or does she break his heart all over again?
