A story that touched me so deeply, I simply got carried away. I could not stop reading it. First of all, grab the tissues! Because you are going to need them. A beautifully written book from cover to last page. First the cover showed a lot about this lady. Where she had been. Things she had done. The things she had written. Beautiful colored envelops. Colorful string, plus more. This was a classy lady that knew exactly what she wanted, and how to go about getting it. My heart truly went out to her. She went through a lot. Plus; she made beautiful memories. The ending really pulled at my heart-strings too. THE RED ADDRESS BOOK was such a joy to read. Especially when Jenny showed up and Doris began talking to her about certain things. I could go on and on about this book. I loved it.
