Overview

The things we love are the things that last...

Which people touched your life most deeply? In what way do those memories define you today? Which positive pieces of your past have you carried with you into adulthood?

In The Forever Box, Kristin Clark Taylor embarks on a journey into the happiest days of her own youth. Through her refreshing voice as a seven-year-old girl in Detroit, she leads us through four summer days during which she visits four of her closest friends, elderly women who share their wisdom and wit-and each share treasured trinkets from their own past, beginning the process of memory-making that Taylor holds so dear.

What she shares in her new book are not just the stories behind the trinkets, but the all-embracing concept of forever-a tangible, touchable permanence that can be joyfully and deliberately created by each and every one of us. Enchanting and magical in its universal appeal, The Forever Box teaches all of us how to weave our past with our present, making our own "tomorrows" something to cherish and remember forever.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Former Director of White House Media Relations Kristin Clark Taylor was the first woman of color to hold that important executive position, but this notable achievement looms no larger than numerous others in this heartwarming memoir. Taylor's "forever box" holds her most treasured mementos. At first glance, many of these personal items have little intrinsic importance; it is only as they are described in the context of her family history that their deep significance is revealed. The Forever Box is a document that ultimately brings us back to ourselves. After reading it, we quite naturally begin constructing our own treasure boxes of remembrances.

    Kristin Clark Taylor shares wonderful rememberances of her life

    Kristin Clark Taylor shares wonderful rememberances of her life through stories of her mother, her grandmother, and the warm and loving atmosphere of the neighborhood she grew up in as a child. The emotional and heart-touching tales all have a lovely moral to share, and reflect the tender soul of the author. I highly recommend this book!
