"This dazzling and moving memoir is a roller coaster of loss and transition, held together by the reminder that love and family run deeper than we ever imagine. Written in gorgeous prose, this ultimately uplifting tale will have you savoring every page." -- Claire Bidwell Smith, author of The Rules of Inheritance Beth and her older sister try desperately to maintain normalcy and order, in the face of uncertainty and confusion. Their young lives are filled with deception and despair at the hands of a narcissistic mother and her abusive boyfriend. Told from Beth's point of view, the story unfolds with innocence and honesty. The Gold Mailbox captures moments of despair and hope, sadness and humor, sister rivalry and sister love, death and emotional rebirth, abuse and unconditional love. In the end, the story leaves the reader marveling over the healing power of compassion and forgiveness.

Dear Dana ,
Thanks so much for the beautiful note with the extra picture and bookmark. I wanted to post pics of it all together , without showing everything written, just to display your gorgeous handwriting ! Wow, is it pretty. I‘m going to have to try harder with mine, which looks literally like chicken scratch. I‘ll be responding this weekend. 💕
 @DoonTheGoon

Jee_HookedOnBookz My. Oh my!! That handwriting isn't handwriting! It's art!! So beautiful!! How am I gonna send out mine now... 😓 I really hope the recipients of my cards will be able to read my handwriting... That's such a beautiful card too, @kaye! 5mo
Kaye No worries, @Jee_HookedOnBookz . I honestly treasure every single note I get from each of you, because I know you took the effort to write me a note , talk about books or life or anything else...each one is just as special. I was just amazed at this handwriting. My writing is really messy , so no worries. I‘ll try harder to write neater. 5mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @kaye I'll do the same too! And I appreciate everyone who takes the time to do the same too. Spending their time writing and thinking of me. Gets me all warm and fuzzy inside❤️ 5mo
tracey38 Beautiful. I love how she addressed the envelope, too! 5mo
DoonTheGoon Yay so glad it arrived safely!!! ✉💓 5mo

Not book related, but for those Littens who also enjoy writing and receiving letters, I've come across a website featuring letter writing, www.lettermo.com I've always loved getting snail mail letters, so I've signed up at this site.

Crazeedi Cool idea! Thank you! 5mo
Kaye Thank you for the link. I checked it out but I believe I‘ll pass, only because I‘ve got a full plate of people in here to write to. I hope you guys have a good time with it, though. 5mo

I completely forgot to take a picture of the box before I mailed it, but my #jólabókaflódswap match will be getting her package soon!

PerksOfBeingABookworm Shoot, I guess hashtags don‘t recognize slashed o‘s as letters. In any case, my #jolabokaflodswap partner should get her package on Saturday! 6mo

Kaye Thank you , too, Archana. I enjoyed your note so much. You‘re very descriptive in your phrases. Have you ever thought of being a writer yourself ? You have such a beautiful way with words. I‘m glad you like the group so much. It‘s an honor to know all of you. ♥️ 12mo
BiblioLitten Gosh! That's so sweet of you. 🤗 I have always loved writing letters but never thought of becoming a writer. Too self-conscious/ self-critical I guess🙈 12mo

Well , the gifts just keep on coming ! You guys are amazing. Let‘s see if I can decipher who these are from. The brown box is directly from Amazon , the biggest envelope is from @Kdgordon88 , next envelope is from @Mimi28 , and the white box must be to me from me because my address is in both places. 😮. I don‘t remember mailing myself anything. 😁 you guys are quite creative. Thanks to all of you. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

@CoffeeCatsBooks sorry for the day late post. We were slammed yesterday. I am in love with my package. Thank you so much! You are so kind! I can‘t believe you got me the pensieve set! I have been wanting it for so long! I love everything! The Ravenclaw edition is gorgeous! I really love the pictures and extras inside of it. The bookmarks are so fun, and will be used daily 💙 I‘m so happy you got me the Funko, too. I‘ve been eyeballing it!

CoffeeCatsBooks Glad you enjoyed it! I thought the train 🚂 with Harry Potter was too cute to pass up. 1y

I am halfway through this book & cannot put it down. Amazing memoir that is just heartbreaking & uplifting at the same time.
