I happened upon this book, and I am so glad I did. It is the story of a love, and marriage that is so incredibly intimate, it's almost difficult to imagine that such a love existed between two people. It's the first book I read that brought me to tea...more

Clear rating
I had a hard time reading this book because of the writing, which left a lot to be desired. I'm sure it was not the author's intent, but at times he comes across as a bit self-righteous. I think his youth is evident in his writing; a lot of passion,...more
