I ordered this book for my 81 year old mum. She loves the fact that she can not only share her memories with me and my family but also that she can reflect on her life. Also, it's lovely to have something personal with her own handwriting in it. Something I really treasure when I see my late father's writing. A really lovely book and a great gift with years of pleasure for the reader.
I am so glad I purchased these for my parents. They stories, memories and photos they included between the pages had me laughing and crying. I will treasure them forever.
I love the idea of this. My mother is getting on a bit now, and although I listen to her, it's great for her to tell me about her life in permanent form. You need the kind of Mother who will find the time to do this though! If I ever get one I will make sure I tell my daughter all about my school chums, my favourite things, and so on. It's a lovely book too, just a nice thing to have and to own.
