“Love stories such as this are too rare – heartfelt, tender, real and full of honest emotions of many kinds.”
—Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Amazon Reviewer

“I really enjoyed reading this book, and it reminded me a lot of my grandparents. I think that that type of love is rare and inspirational. Ruth and Earl built a relationship based on friendship, respect, and unconditional love, and their relationship remained steadfast through the years and challenges… One of my patients was talking about death one time, and talked about leaving her husband behind. She said that as long as her husband was alive, a part of her heart would remain on earth with him. This is the type of connection that I saw in Ruth and Earl.”
—Kelli, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Indianapolis, IN

“The author has a rare gift for accurately conveying both emotions and physical details surrounding important events and the impact of life events, whether positive or negative. The author realistically describes the pleasures, joys, sorrows, and challenges which two people who are in love faced as they built a life together based on religious values and solid principles… The author succeeded in writing a unique book which takes the reader back in time to an era which seemed simpler, more gentle and kinder, although it was fraught with danger and uncontrollable events which produced life-altering changes on both of them. This book is most highly recommended.”
