Since the beginning of time, people have loved to hear the narratives and experiences of others. Memoirs make it possible for many to share in these stories.
As writer Abigail McCarthy says, "Every memoir reminds us of the faraway and long ago, of loss and change, of persons and places beyond recall."
Collected here are a cluster of inspirational experiences from far and wide, spanning the passage of time, inspiring those who read these stories.
