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.
