    1. Oh, I do love a good essay. Seriously, if I were a writing teacher at college instead of for second graders, I would use this book as a text book. She crafts a perfect essay. Every time.


    2. A Five Star Rating!A book of essays that are aliken to sitting with your best friend or group of friends. I started to stretch out my reading time because I didn't want the book to end.Walks down Memory Lane, commentary and reflection. Even though there is no dialogue with another person, you find yourself feeling as though you are sitting in a cafe with a good friend. The essays reflect the best of "looking back" and "moving forward".


    3. Easy read! I am a fan of Ms. Steinbach's books, but had never read this one. This book is basically a collection of some of her newspaper columns. Each selection was 1-3 pages in length, and it was not a continuing story, which made it very easy to pick up and put down. As always with Ms. Steinbach's writing, I would find pieces and parts that touched meere are now many turned down pages in my book.


    4. Alice Steinbach is one of my favorite authors and this is a very good book. It is a series of short stories and essays and is very touching, insightful and I love the way she writes. This one is a keeper.



    5. Alice Steinbach is one of my favorite authors. She has such a beautiful way of describing things, and telling stories. Alice is funny, charming and insightful.



    6. Such fun and poignant writing. Great for when you only have a few moments to read. These are a collection of her columns.



    7. Not really a memoir, this is a series of essays and personal reflections. If you like a well crafted essay, this is a good place ot find one.
