According to Healy's account of her correspondence with Gudrun Brug, the letters "are a record of a friendship between two writers." The letters, written by Brug and received by Healy, involve Brug's loves, single motherhood, religion, modernism, Brug's and Healy's novels, and Brug's attempt to have a memorial built on the site of the Synogogueplatz in her home town of Forchheim. Healy also notes that in a sense, each of the women wrote their novels in these letters, as they would share passages, ideas, and characters. Healy has included her own novel, Lone Stars, in the collection, as a number of Brug's letters reference and discuss Healy's characters.
The collection primarily consists of Brug's letters to Healy, but also includes a number of typescripts of Brug's writings, one copy of Healy's novel, "Lone Stars," as well as copies of Brug's novels, "Ostergroschen" and "Die Schande," both in German.
