Marie Colvin met Gerald Weaver at Yale. There they began a romance that evolved into a 37-year friendship. She inspired him to write a novel. With her editing and coaching, he wrote “Gospel Prism.” Only days after he mailed it to her, she took the manuscript to the most dangerous place on earth, where she heroically died. Her sister tells the story of finding the manuscript, and little else, among her personal effects.
A movie, “A Private War,” now tells the story of Marie Colvin’s life.
