A true story about a little girl called Karen with cerebal palsy who writes a letter to Elvis. Written by her carer Lena Canada. A wonderful but sad book. Elvis gave this little girl so much joy. He personally sent her letters and gifts! A MUST read!

I didn't know that there is a book about this story, I thought only the film, which I haven't seen either. Vera, is this an old book or just come out recently?

Hi Christine

The one I have is an old copy. It is a first edition published in 1978. I bought my copy on ebay.

I think the movie was called Touched By Love. I have never seen it but will keep an eye out for it now.

Such a lovely story. The author received approval to publish the book only a week before Elvis' death. She wanted Elvis to now more about Karen and how much his letters meant to her. This little girl was very withdrawn and wouldn't communicate with others at all. Until her carer realised she loved Elvis.

I've seen the movie several times (have it on video), and read the book (have a photo copy of it). Both are great! The book is of course, more detailed and profound.

the book:

Thanks Vera for the recommendation and Maia for the link. At just a $1.29 for a used book, even my budget could handle this low price. So I ordered one and it's on the way. I have never seen the movie but hope to some day. It's not released on DVD and videos are hard to come by at a reasonable price.
Already I have a backlog of Elvis books to read. I can't imagine I'll ever be w/o reading material. But Wanda's new book is top priority when I get it. All the rest can wait!

I have been looking for that film, but I don't find it.

I don't understand very well the technic matters, but I have a DVD player that can play diverse kinds of DVDs. Besides, we have two computers at home, each one with a player. So, I imagine that it would not be difficult to play it.

I suggest to use the time we'll have Maia's video going through the friends in Europe. Julie, you could make a copy and send it with Maia's video to the first of the list. That friend could copy it and send to the next, along with the video, etc.

What do you think about it?

Hi Julie

I would love a copy if it's not too much trouble. Of course I am more than happy to pay for any costs associated :) I am in Australia but my DVD plays all regions.

Let me know if this will be possible :)

Cheers
Vera

Dear, dear Julie,

I do have in mind your offer of sending a copy of "Touched by Love". Sue offered to send me a copy too. I'll take her's in order of not to load you with so much work, as Vera and Christine asked you for one.

Thank you very, very, very much! Image
