Powerful. Intimate. Unforgettable.

A glimpse into the private world of famous and not so famous people from thousands of years ago up to recent times. A wide range of authors and subject matter. What a fabulous idea for a book - even more so when the original handwritten copy is included with a typed duplicate and related pictures included.

I look forward to reading the second volume.
