Each human, each life, each story, each book…each kiss is unique and different. To be able to recall your life based upon kisses is a wondrous thing!
This astonishing anthology of essays ranges from childhood memories to adult recollections. However no matter the age, a kiss is never just a kiss. We are reminded of this in each essay. The lasting importance of a kiss is celebrated and appreciated, as it should be.
Sometimes it is a kiss we needed. Sometimes it is a kiss that we never receive, that matters most to us. A kiss can be a beginning, or a final farewell. A kiss can comfort us, be a stabilizing force, or it may be something that simply keeps us going.
Ms. Sternbach offers a beautifully written and creative memoir. This one is definitely meant to be shared…just like a kiss.
