Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher


"Sandra Lamb's book reinforces the principles of etiquette, reminding us that writing personal notes is a vital way of sharing appreciation and respect with others. Handwritten correspondence is an art form that is far from lost." -- Peggy Post, etiquette expert and author

“Sandra Lamb gently reminds us that the tried-and-true values of the past are still part of connecting to others in the present. In helping us find the words, she gives us a gift we can pass along to our children.” -- Andrea Warren, author of Orphan Train Rider: One Boy's True Story

"Lamb reminds us of the value of personal connections and etiquette in all our relationships." -- Mary Mihaly, author of The 250 Questions Every Self-Employed Person Should Ask and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Demystified 

“ If you've ever sat down to write a note of condolence, congratulations, announce good or bad news, or any other personal or business note and found yourself at a loss for words; this book is for you…But then, she increases the value of this special little volume by covering relationship building, business, and even natural disasters…Wherever you write, at home or at the office, your writing equipment should include a copy of this book.  You'll find yourself turning to it again and again.” -- Tina Tessina, Ph.D., author, blogger, professional counselor 

"This is an essential guide and inspiration for those of us who want to strike just the right chord in our communications with others.  This is a sensitive, informative book."  --Timothy Harper, CUNY Graduate School of Journalism
