From Newbury with Love archiveFrom Newbury with Love tells the intimate true story of daily life in two very different worlds, Newbury and Moldova, during a fascinating period of social and political history. 1971 - In the depths of the Cold War, 7 year old Marina, the daughter of an imprisoned Soviet dissident living in Moldova, received a postcard from across the Iron Curtain that changed her family's life. It simply read "With love from Newbury. Berks. England. Harold and Olive." Prompted by the Amnesty International letter-writing campaign the postcard was sent by 73-year-old Newbury resident Harold Edwards and his wife, Olive; so began a 15-year written correspondence and friendship between the families.
