This was a bookclub selection and not a book I would have picked on my own. I am so glad it was chosen! The book brings history to the Presidential letter writing system. I was fascinated to learn how and why the letter office was devloped, how it is staffed and how President Obama receives the letters he reads each night. The personal stories of the letter writers had me in tears. Literally. I didn't think this book would cause personal reflection on my life, but it did.

The author is a journalist so I appreciated his long-format writing style. Overall, a wonderful and easy read. Gut wrenching at times but a true reflection of America.
