I thumbed through Slovak Touches. Congratulations, you did a fine job and my compliments to Toni Brendel. It is so nice to see something like this for the Slovaks – it was so needed. You have such a nice way of combining all kinds of information and homey touches and factual information into an appealing book. Bravo!
Best regards, Gail
