Send a letter, give a gift. Finding a letter amid catalogs, impersonal flyers, & bills is like getting an unexpected present -- created just for the recipient. Victoria The Pleasures of Staying in Touch gives excellent, reassuring advice, helping the reader to get started. Whether the occasion calls for an invitation, a thank-you, a note of congratulations, or a letter of condolence, Victoria shows the way. Examples of memorable & appropriate letters for every situation are included, providing both help & inspiration. In a society accustomed to telephones, faxes, & e-mail, there is an antidote: a handwritten letter. While store-bought & preprinted cards can be personal to a degree, handwritten words to a family member or friend are true treasures. One can read & reread these thoughts & reflect on them whenever one likes. Many letters can bring one back to a particular time, a particular moment, a happy recollection. What Victoria The Pleasures of Staying in Touch conveys is that the important part of a letter is that it comes from the heart. No matter what one's writing skills, a sincere expression of love, sympathy, or simply a sharing of thoughts is a lifetime keepsake.
