One-Winged Dove

Recently, I noted a dedication to the One-Winged Dove in one of the books I’m reading, and it made me smile. I came across the One-Winged Dove in my research of the London Times agony column and always wondered about her situation. For those of you who don’t know, the London Times published “advertisements” on page one, column two that read like cryptic snapshots into people’s lives. Readers scanned the column daily, looking for responses (and vicarious adventures). Sadly, the One-Winged Dove had to wait months for an answer, and I imagine it was not the one she was hoping for.
