This book is a gem. It's common sense approach to marriage, love and living to the fullest is a refreshing change from the current doom and gloom around us. I thoroughly enjoyed her wisdom, wit and irresistible sense of humor. She's proof that despite life's bumps in the road a person can make the best of the it and isn't defined by their tragedies.

A book written from the heart, for the heart. Such simple yet profound lessons, that stand the test of time. We can learn so much from Cutie's words, and the Cooper's enduring love. You'll laugh, cry and want to share the book with every girl you know. I LOVED it!!!! (and read it in one sitting... could NOT put it down!)

Format: Hardcover
I've been a fan of Kim Cooper's writing for years -- since she published the great pop culture zine SCRAM. Her two books about obscure pop music are delightful guidebooks for those of us who don't haunt record stores, and her Neutral Milk Hotel book is one of the best in the 33 1/3 series. "Fall in Love for Life" is a different kettle of fish -- it's about an elderly couple and how they've managed to make their relationship work. Cooper is the book's co-editor, not its author, but her way with words, love of history, and sharp eye/ear for telling details are -- I'm sure -- one of the reasons that Cutie Cooper's blog The Original Grandparents [...] was so fun to read, and this book too.

Ms. Barbara spoke very intuitively & from experience. Her words of wisdom provide people with the foundation for a lasting relationship. I found her to be insightful, warm, & thought provoking.

I'd recommend this book to anyone that wants to improve their relationship. Her writings help with looking at different perspectives on handling situations. I'd also recommend to anyone looking for a relationship. She provides the important traits & characteristics to look for in a partner.

Ms. Barbara's wit & charm are abundantly clear. Her life lessons feel genuine & heartfelt. Happy reading!

I loved reading every word in this book! It was just heart warming to read about a relationship that was like any other relationship but which stood the test of time. It was great to be reminded of the common sense advice that we should all know but can sometimes slip our mind every now and then. I really enjoyed Cutie's humor and her positivity - almost as if it was my grandma talking to me. Plus, looking at all the pictures and reading all the stories makes me hope and think positive that I can one day have a long and beautiful marriage like the Coopers as long as there is love and respect for each other. Thank you Cutie for sharing your advice with me!

Sometimes it takes someone telling us what we already know to be true in order to put it in to practice.

I bought this book for myself and my husband...we've been married for 25 years and would like to shoot for 75. I thought it was so wonderful I bought a copy for my 19 and 21 year old daughters. I wish I had read it myself when I was their age. She writes with such wisdom and down to earth style. I highly recommend this book for anyone that wants to see how to improve their relationship, or to start a relationship.

This book is a joy to read. Its like sitting at the foot of a treasured family member and listening to their wise counsel about EVERYTHING you are going to go through in your life. There isn't anyone that wouldn't benefit from Cutie's advice and wisdom. It is clarifying listening to the stories she tells as you will see yourself in them. Thank you to Cutie for putting this book to record, and thank you to Chinta and Kim for sharing your treasure of a grandmother with the world. I plan on buying several to give away as Christmas gifts this year.
