What a delight to read the author openly share her reflections and experiences while recapturing her memories, both pleasant and challenging ones. As a result, within that framework, the author reached me on a level deeper than I ordinarily experience with a book.
Basically, the author provides the reader with a "how to" for her readers to recapture their own personal memories of the past. As the author's memories unfolded page by page, I found that I was reminded of several dozen of my own personal memories, which I entered on my nearby note pad. As a result, I now have a deeper insight into some of the gold in many of my memories. This has resulted in a rich and enjoyable reading experience for me.
