Morag Prunty, Authoress Extraordinaire!

Though I am generally a pretty fast reader, it took me (what seemed like) an eternity to finish this book. I enjoy books about relationships. I like happy endings. This book contains the separate reflections of a granddaughter and her grandmother on their marriages. Shortly into the book, I got a pencil and paper and jotted down page numbers where profound insights were written. I filled an entire paper and began to despair of how I would ever have the patience to copy everything I wanted to remember! Frequently I'd just have to put the book down to let it sink in.

I believe the title came from this line: "They say there is no such thing as a perfect marriage, but there is. A perfect marriage is one where two people live together for most of their lives until death separates them. There is no such thing as an easy marriage...."

How these two couples navigate marriages that are not so untypical was sometimes reassuring, sometimes instructive, sometimes convicting, and at last very heart-warming! If you like this genre of books, I recommend it. Warning: You'll probably shed a tear or two.


  1. Hi Rebecca, I too enjoy books about relationships and marriage. Not to long ago I finished a book called " Two Part Invention-Story of a Marriage" by Madeline Engle. It is an autobiography of Madieline and her husband. It left me not wanting to read anything after that because it touched me so much that Nothing else piqued my interest. Maybe the book you finished will spark me into reading again!

  2. Sounds really nice, thanks for sharing your thoughts on it.

    And thanks so much for visiting my blogs and for your kind comments left.
    I see you have quite a few blogs! How do you keep them up?!

    I just started the 'house project' blog recently, I don't know if people who prefer to visit 'personal' blogs would have all that much interest in detailed home projects (and the same goes for the home blogs with the personal blogs). I happen to enjoy the decorating blogs. I like visiting them and getting ideas (except then I want to change my home decor completely!).

    Well, my weekends are ususally busy, but I'm going to try to catch up on all your blogs over the next coming weeks!

    So sorry about your uncle passing. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

  3. Thanks for the reccomendation, I love these kind of books......:-) Hugs

  4. I will be looking for it Rebecca...I love to read "good" books...the last book I enjoyed was The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.
    Thanks for your comment Rebecca...your flowers are well planned too I'm sure.

  5. It sounds like a good book--I will have to put that on my short list of 'must read's. Thanks.
