Ellen Greene tells a wonderful and very moving history of her life, failed first marriage and trials of raising her two children on her own until she finally finds the love of her life in Marsh Greene. What follows is a touching account of their early relationship, married life in New England, shared adventures sailing half-way around the world on their small yacht, move to Shanghai, China for 3 years, and relaxing retirement life in Mexico until Marsh is stricken with Parkinson's Disease. Her tender account of their final years together moved me to tears many times and brought back similar memories of losing my wife to cancer over a several year period. As her story ends, the reader is left knowing that Widow Greene will certainly grieve for a while, but her will is strong and she will rise up and, hopefully, love again when the time is right. Keeping a list of the sweet things that happen in one's relationship is a wonderful idea and I wish I had thought of it myself years ago. Congratulations and thanks for your terrific book, Ellen.

Hallmark magazine first hilighted her story after family and friends heard her tribute to her husband. It's a warm story of two professionals who had an admiration for each other and fell in love. He was carasmatic and vivacious, she was willing and adventerous. They married and together co-parented her two boys. Their life took them on travels and adventures with an interesting turn of events. Ellen's love lists were a grounding and beautiful tradition that will always be part of their legacy. I found the book on Amazon becase of the tags of their time in Mexico. I read the book in two evenings. It was an easy, breezy read.. a happy, sad, feel good story.

I started a list for Dave in November when I bought the book. Dave said my Valentine to him was the best present he had ever received from me. The process was great for myself. It was like a visual journal of the past months. I am in the process again but I have to be sure to not procrastinate writing down the 'Sweet Things" Dave does every day. I appreciate Eleen for sharing her story and I am a more grateful wife due to reading it.

The story is interesting and well written, and often I felt as if I could walk into the pages as I understood how the author felt about different things. Their love story was definitely an adventure but at it's core, had the best qualities. It's rare to find a love that is so 'big', as solid, as honorable and dependable, and still fun and challenging in good healthy ways.
Would definitely recommend this book!

A very different view of recording and nurturing a relationship.

Adventurous life we may think about, but few of us have the nerve and discipline to do.

Life is full of happiness and tragedy.

In midlife there is still hope for romance and fun.

Diverse culture can be divisive and bonding.

Transparent look into bonding romance and the challenges.

Adventure is around the corner if you let it take into its arms.

Once I started Ellen's book I could not put it down. I've raved
about it to friends and family only to discover they had already
read it and loved it as I did. Not only is the book a good read
but there is much to learn from it about having a healthy loving
relationship.

Thanks Ellen.

Story of my life - LOVED IT! Good suggestions on how to nurture love, everyone should read.
Greene's memoir describes how she & her husband kept the love and fun in their relationship throughout their 20 year marriage, even through major struggles such as her husband's cancer & Parkinson's disease diagnoses. Much of this is done through lists that Greene writes up for her husband, made up of little things he's done throughout each year that might seem largely insignificant but were really meaningful to her. A clever way of making your spouse feel appreciated :-) I admit, there's a pretty sweet love story here, and I liked reading about their adventures, especially the part where she talks about their attempt to live on a boat full time. I also appreciated that when discussing her husband's fight with Parkinson's, she talks about Parkinson's related dementia & hallucinations, something I don't see mentioned that often. While I enjoyed these parts, there were a few cons for me.

There were times where some of the descriptions of their romantic gestures -- for me anyway --- were a little sickeningly sappy, some just even straight-up ick for me. Other parts suffered from the "humble brag" IMO. Also, I was a little turned off by the part when she talks about some pretty important things -- home & car repairs, property taxes, veterinary appts. -- she allowed to lapse after her husband's Parkinson's progressed rapidly, because those were usually her husband's duties and she didn't enjoy them. She admits that these things were only addressed after a couple years when the seriousness of the financial situation really hit her. I just found it off-putting that she could go on and on about how good her husband was at pampering her and yet when she was really needed to reciprocate and step up, her initial reaction was "well, it wasn't my thing." The message of the memoir, the sentiment of truly appreciating your spouse and going above and beyond to express that to them, is an important one no doubt, but I didn't find the book as a whole as impactful as I had hoped.
