Inspiring stories of individuals—aged 46 to 97—who experienced a resurgence of passion in their lives when they least expected it.

F. Scott Fitzgerald believed there are no second acts in American lives. Yet at least as far as love is concerned, the statistics indicate otherwise. These days, more and more people are falling in love and embarking on deep and fulfilling romantic relationships in the later part of their lives. At a time when the specter of spending one's final years alone can seem only slightly less intimidating than Internet dating, the subjects profiled in this book tossed their hearts up in the air with the hope that love just might spring eternal.

And just how different is the game at age seventy-five than it was at age twenty-five? This book forms an engaging meditation on the ways that love itself alters and matures as we grow older. Organized around the distinct and often surprising themes that emerged from Gold's conversations with lovers from all walks of life—love suddenly appearing out of the shadows following a determination to find it at whatever cost; second-act relationships that represent 180-degree turns for the parties involved; a sense of finally coming home to the one you were meant to be with in the final stages of life—Love in the Second Act will remind anyone, young or old, that the quest for love is never-ending.
