    Loved this book!! I keep going back to it! The women are beautiful and their hairstyles are just as beautiful, especially the cover model Ms./Mrs. Lettice Graham! She was 82 at the time of the book being published back in 2005, so that would make her 89 or 90 today! Beautiful Queen! I pray that I look that good when I'm that age!
