Of all of the tangible things that Mother left behind when she passed…we treasure few things more than we treasure her letters,” -The children of Marjorie Pay Hinckley

This delightful sampling of letters by Marjorie Pay Hinckley spans nearly 50 years of letter-writing to her beloved family. The book is divided into six sections, which serve to group the correspondence into different stages of Sister Hinckley’s life: Letters from a Young Wife and Mother, Letters to a Teenage Daughter, Letters from a Sister, Letters to a Growing Family, Letters from a World traveler, and Letters to Grandchildren. Each section provides a glimpse into Sister Hinckley’s character – her faith, her values, her love, her enthusiasm, and her observations of everyday life.

REVIEW: I absolutely loved Sister Hinckley, I once had the privilege of hearing her speak. This is mainly an LDS book, but anyone can read it. I sometimes feel like letter writing is a lost art, but reading the letters that she wrote makes you want to pick up the pen and write someone a letter.
