The title: "The story of a marriage," is so correct. There are common denominators that every couple goes through: desire, spirituality, money issues, child birth and loss of a child, depression, isolation, family issues, poverty, shelter, making a living; its all there. this is like a manual of how it could be, and what issues couples should plan on dealing with.
Moving on, the visual scenery is like walking inside a life painting akin to a Southen Monet; I could feel the brustrokes of the golden leaves; the fall air climbs outside of the novel and lifts the pages.
You can feel that flood water rising inside the house. I could even smell
Lyricism, stoicism, and superior story telling. Do not let this one flee from your readers clasp.

structured. It seemed like every time when either Julie or Hank would make a comment the author would end it with, "he said", or "she said". Finally when they were in a tuff situation the author changes from "he said" to "he shouted!" Wow a change in structure! This book was a chore to read!
I think a lot of negative reviews got it wrong when they said it was a book filled with tragedy after tragedy. To me, it was a book filled with triumph after triumph. I wish I could give 6 stars. A must read!!
