I can not begin to tell you how amazingly beautiful this book is. My heart is still swelled with emotion after reading this incredible collection...of short stories, poems, flash fiction, recipes, pictures and an amazing amount of love. I have to thank this author for sharing these beautiful memories that made me remember times past and the love and happiness that can be found in life. This collection is like an old patchwork quilt, made of bits and pieces and sewn together with love and care. This book is a must have and one to keep close by anytime you want to have that heart touching feeling that brings a tear to the eye and those goosebumps to the arms that mean you are feeling something rare, special and made with love. Thanks to Phyllis F. Mcmanus for taking readers on this special journey. Needless to say, I highly recommend this incredible collection.
