Dedicated to the daughter she never had but sees all around her, Letter to My Daughter reveals Maya Angelou's path to living well and living a life with meaning. Told in her own inimitable style, this book transcends genres and categories: guidebook, memoir, poetry, and pure delight. Here in short spellbinding essays are glimpses of the tumultuous life that led Angelou to an exalted place in American letters and taught her lessons in compassion and fortitude.

Maya Angelou never had a daughter but this narrative of short stories and lessons, told in only a Maya Angelou can, is remarkable. Women, men, all races and religions van benefit from this. You'll be enlightened and have new perspectives on any struggles you may be going through.
