Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In an attempt to lessen the toll time can take on already fickle memories, Lifetime Press has created this slim journal for women looking to record personal history and family legend. The book is segmented into thematic chapters: "My Story," which covers a woman's birth and early family life, including memories of her parents from that time; "Love Story," which includes first love, love for pets and best friends, and marriage; "Family Story"; "Mapping Your Past," a primer on genealogical research; "Creating Memories Page by Page," which offers advice about archiving photos and documents; and "Preserving Family Heirlooms." Interspersed among the many fill-in-the-blank prompts ("What I thought as I said my vows ...") are brief nuggets of advice about how to use the journal (brainstorm for ideas, ask friends and relatives about their own memories, etc.). Although the flow of life events that readers are asked to document hews to a notably traditional script (what, for example, do women who married but never had children do with the entire chapter on family?), this helpful little journal is bound to spark trips down memory lane. (Apr.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
