I treasure this book. A friend gave it to me during a difficult time in my life and it was so comforting. I have done the same - giving it to family members and friends. Eleanor's insights guide my life and help me to bravely accept change and make the most of daily life. She never preaches but rather gently explains the philosophies that made her such a model of integrity. I am surprised this isn't a more well known book.
Im gonna do this one again. Never. Ever. EVER! trust boys. All they enjoy doing is hurting girls.
