"[A] triumph of the human spirit...May take its quiet place among the best of the literature."
--The New York Times Book Review
"A singular and beautiful book."
"A compelling and sensitive story of the endurance of love and the spiritual journey of a marriage."
--Elizabeth Marshall Thomas
"A graceful tribute to a brief but intense relationship that can only be summed up as true love."
"This is a story I never thought I would tell. It is the story of a love, the love I shared with a man who came into my life almost surreptitiously, a man who loved me in the most complete way and then died. If he had not died, I would not be telling this story..."
Writer and editor Edie Clark was not expecting love to enter her life with a young carpenter named Paul Bolton. She was facing the realities of a failing marriage, while Paul was a shy, gentle, but sometimes troubled man. Yet together they nurtured a love and built a married life as beautiful and enduring as the simple rustic cottage Paul restored for Edie. And in the time they shared, they would find extraordinary grace and strength, and see their lives transformed by the power of love.
