    As a fan of the original Star Trek series, I was delighted to "discover" this book. Kristine M. Smith writes with a lovely engaging voice, true professionalism, and a humanity that shines through her words just as Mr. Kelley's shone through his work.

    Kris has lovingly compiled an anthology of well-written, thought-provoking and inspiring reflections from De's admirers about the ways in which his life and work still continue to influence their lives for the good. Well done, Kris; I'm sure De is proud!

    Precious Memories

    Rating 5

    Kristine, I read your memoirs and I have to say that I shed some tears over it. Maybe that was not your intentions but to share the joy of the people whose lives were affected by DeForest Kelley was very moving. The man on the screen seemed no different than the one described in your memoirs. I don't know if June Lowry cast him in that role or not but he has the gentle look of a healer. He never lost that on the screen, even when he picked at Spock. He brought outer space back down to Earth with his characterization of a country doctor on a spaceship. When I heard of his passing I felt a lump in my throat because of the personal bonds to Star Trek that he helped form among the fans. For lack of a better analogy I can only compare Deforest Kelley with the turpentine that lends itself a medium for the oil paint to adhere to the canvas. The show would not have been received as well without him. God bless you for your recognition and memoirs of a special man, and your labor of love.

    Kris Does It Again!

    Rating 5

    I thought Kris's first book, DeForest Kelley: A Harvest of Memories was great. This one is equally remarkable -- I can't wait for the second and third editions. This one went by way too fast! De's fans ALL seem to be wonderful writers!
