Son-in-law Loves Lucy's Letters Feb 15, 2002
Lucy was my mother-in-law and we clicked from the time we met. We were both owls and stayed up into the night talking when Nan and I would visit Cleveland. We were both avid readers and enjoyed sharing books and newspaper articles. Over the years our relationship changed but our fondness for each other remained. I enjoy reminiscing the life and times of Lucy through her letters. Lucy's Letters provides a window in time.
an incredible treasure Nov 17, 2001
a beautiful book of great clarity and and wisdom that lovelingly captures the simplicity of a lovely lady. I laughed, cried and ordered four copies for my children
Lucy's Letters: A Mother's Gift Nov 10, 2001
A must read, once you pick-it up, you won't want to put it down. A treasure trove of memories as seen through the eyes of a modern 20th century woman. A time-capsule documenting life during the the 20th century. Clever anecdotes in abundance! A special note to the author . . . who is the "loud neighbor".
