My mom gave this book to me
as an engagement present
back in January 2017.
I began to read it then
and read a good two thirds
before my wedding day.
After that, practicing the art of being a wife
temporarily took my attention away
from reading about the art.
I finished reading the letters this month.
This gift from my own mother is precious to me.
It's clearly meant to be a piece of art
and an heirloom.
The cover and interior
are high quality
and the format beautiful.
Still, while the content is alright,
the prose pales in comparison to the rest.
Perhaps one who is not a poet would not mind so much.
