Comments Letters to a Teenage Son

  • Stephanie Holt

    I bought a copy of this second hand and finally got around to reading it. The era it wasn't written in reflected immensely in the letters. I challenged myself to take it for the time it was written in and found some useful things to start conversations with my children.
