"Embracing both her vulnerability and strength, Kathleen Buckstaff reaches into the soul and opens a precious door that brings to life her grandmother’s truth, “You’ve got to touch to love.” In sharing that truth, Kathleen and The Tiffany Box teach us an ultimate truth, “There was so much pain, because there was so much love.” Elegant. Beautiful. Compelling."
--Rev. Doug Huneke, chaplain and author
"Loved this book! I laughed out loud, I cried and even shared passages with my husband. For anyone who has ever been a mother and/or a daughter, this book will touch your soul and stay with you. Kathleen Buckstaff captures the spirit of motherhood, it’s highs and lows, and takes you on a journey that makes you appreciate life and all it has to offer. I highly recommend this book!"
--Jeanine Thompson, mother
“I have never sobbed after reading the first two pages of a book, and I don't think I have ever finished a book and then started reading it again from the beginning right afterwards. I can't remember a time I read a book and midway through ordered 11 copies to give to people that I know would love it... . It is a spiritual, powerful, sentimental, rip-roaring funny, unique, helpful read. I am deeply appreciative of this book, because it teaches me how I can approach end-of-life situations when I am faced with them. There were countless times in this book when I was laughing and sobbing at the same time. Kathleen Buckstaff exhibits mastery of the language, brilliance of mind and wit, and authenticity of the soul.”
--Stephanie Ryder, mother
"[The Tiffany Box] is a book I will always have on my bedside table when I need a good laugh or cry."
--Susan Bull, grandmother
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Keep reading because the laughs compete with the tears.
Ms. Buckstaff is a wide-eyed and hopeful woman who has the same doubts and angst as any young woman who is juggling a career as a writer, raising her three children and communicating with her husband. Her hopes and dreams and day-to-day living detailed through emails to her friend Lisel are fraught with anxiety and uncertainty, and yet she seems to be in incredibly in love with her children, her husband and most of all her life.
There is a reason for books such as The Tiffany Box. Yes, people all over the world die from cancer. Yes, people lose family members they love every day, but not everyone can write about it in such a compelling manner. It's good to know that life does go on--as trite as that often sounds. In fact, it's important to learn how to be able to go on living, laughing and loving.
Your heart will soar to great heights when you come to the end of this love story.
