Do you dread writing notes to say “Thank you,” “I’m sorry,” or “Congratulations”?

When’s the last time you sent a handwritten letter to a faraway friend, just to catch up?

What should you write to a grieving friend or colleague? How do you let friends know you’re getting a divorce?

As our lives get busier and faster-paced, the old-fashioned art of personal correspondence is becoming sadly lost. In this upbeat, wise, and witty guide, journalist and lifestyle expert Sandra Lamb offers a wealth of advice, inspiration, and examples for anyone who wants to add flair, voice, and plain old fun to their letters and notes—as well as anyone who wants to know the etiquette of when and what to write. Using colorful examples and practical advice, the book covers thank yous, congratulations, engagements and weddings, birthdays and anniversaries, births and adoptions, appreciation, love notes, illness and accidents, divorce, condolence, regrets, apologies, and forgiveness.

This delightful, indispensable guide helps us rediscover the joy of connecting with others through the simple act of putting pen to paper.
