When you want to get to know someone, the first place to look is their heart. The problem is that it isn't always easy to penetrate the many walls that surround a heart. Sarah Shapiro is gifted. She knows how to translate the language of the heart into entertaining, literate English. When you read her essays and stories, you end up richer. You have more people in your life, and each one of them makes it easier for you to not only know them but to know yourself — better than you did before enjoying what is always a great read.
