Here's what Simon T. Bailey wrote about this book:
As much as email and text messaging have made our lives incredibly easier, they also threaten to extinguish former, more lasting methods of communication: I'm talking about the good, old-fashioned, almost forgotten art of letter writing. That's exactly why Lynette Smith's new book How to Write Heartfelt Letters to Treasure couldn't be better timed. A comprehensive guide to writing honest, heart-whole notes for any and every occasion, the book manages to shift our focus from haste, list checking, self-service, and artifice to gratefulness, obligation, appreciation, and love. There is absolutely no way this book and this author, if we let them, will not change our lives and the world for the better—note by note, letter by letter.
