Elpidio and Alicia: The Love letters (Print - Hardbound)

You are here

Rene R. Guatlo

The book presents the love letters between President Elpidio Quirino and his wife, Alicia Syquia. Early in their marriage, Quirino stayed mostly in Manila where he worked as a lawyer while Alicia stayed in Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Their letters filled the gap between their visits to each other and reflected what life was during the American period that was painfully changed by the Second World War. Alicia and their three children were killed during the liberation while Quirino and their other two children survived. He went on to rise in the national political arena where he became Vice President. When President Manuel Roxas died in 1948, Quirino served the unfinished term and was elected to his own term in 1949.
