Published to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the original Griffin Sabine, The Pharos Gate uncovers the lovers' missing correspondence. Enriching a beloved tale, this is a gorgeous volume that will be enjoyed in its own right by a new generation of readers, as well as old fans. A love story for the ages, the bestselling tale of Griffin Sabine is told in an inimitable way. Beautifully illustrated postcards and removable letters weave the sensual and metaphysical together in a romance full of mystery and intrigue.
"There is one moment of great beauty at the end that will be worth the price of admission for any reader who loves these characters....Although the love letter seems to be a vanishing art, these books rejoice in the physicality and longing such letters embody. The books themselves are insistently physical, too, full of envelopes and notes, like wrapped presents on each page...These are enjoyable, lovely books that appeal to incurable romantics and people who like to open mail. How delightful it is to have this new one. Hurrah!"-The Washington Post
