Letters to Eloise is, hands-down, one of the best books I've read all year. It was an intensely emotional read for me, I think because I have the great blessing of being a mother.
Usually I dislike this kind of question - "if you could have dinner with any person, living or dead, who would it be?" - I've never had a good answer. But for this questions, I had an immediate answer, but I debated whether it was stalker-ish to post it. Clearly, I decided it's not: If I could have dinner with an author, it would be UK indie author Lizzie Steel.
