Do you remember the last book that made you think? Think about how lucky you are, how you could be a better person, why people are the way they are? Letter To My Daughter, by Maya Angelou, does all of this, and more. Angelou's collection of short stories and poems, some light and some more serious, weaves a delicate tale of her life.

All the pieces are different, each with a lesson to offer. There are stories of hope, of belief, of discovery, and what it truly means to be home and to be loved. Angelou recalls each event that made her life with breathtaking detail, making each message as clear as if she were speaking to you.

Once I started reading, I couldn't put this down. The way Angelou is able to write, seamlessly combining plot and theme, makes each story draw toward a powerful conclusion that leaves you well aware of the troubles she has experienced.
