I first saw this book years ago,and it moved me then,when my daughter was born i bought it.hopefully one day in her future she will remember it,and give her the same gentle nostalgic pull on the memories heartstrings,and for a few moments be transported back, just like when i first saw this story.

I bought this for my daughter as she looked just like the girl on the cover. She loved the poignancy of the story, and the book is sitting witing to eventually be read to her children
