John should keep her closer.
If you once had a love and ever re-kindled it, this story will speak to you. Two accomplished people with sufficient independence to have developed their own identities. With this read, I came to recognize where strength in a relationship comes from. With many love stories told, if this is a true story, which I have it on good authority it is, it is a prototype for our own intimate development.
A very quick and beautiful read.
Hollywood screen writers could not have come up with a more sentimental story of rekindling of lost love and the main reason for this is that it is a true story of two amazing people half a world and three quarters of a life apart who where able to rekindle and reunite even while carrying on extremely busy and interesting lives.
The story is a true inspiration and a great joy for me, especially since I have known Lisa(now known affectionately to her friends and colleagues as Lilo)for a quarter of a century and knowing John for only half a decade and seeing how perfect they are for each other. I learned so much more about each of them by reading their amazing story.
Thank you both for sharing this with the World.
When I got that opportunity, I found Lisa to be a charming, intelligent, and beautiful woman. She was very modest in talking about herself and her life. When I read the book that the couple had written, I was astounded at what a truly remarkable woman she is. Lisa was an Olympic swimmer for Germany. She is an internationally renowned doctor in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. She has written numerous books and articles on the subject. She still travels throughout the world giving surgical demonstrations and lectures. At the age of seventy, she is still indefatigable. Now that they are married, John frequently accompanies her.
Their love story reads like the stuff of fiction. It is told in an unusual and interesting manner. I heartily recommend it.It is well worth reading.
As this is a true life story, there is hope for all of us. What could be better in life than health, faith, love and success.

Long Long Ago is much more than a story about a romance that was reunited after 43 years. Dr. Liselotte Mettler's ambitions and accomplishments are indeed impressive and she never... Read morePublished on April 4, 2013 by Juliana Beletsis
