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!
