That Susan combined fiction and memoir in her third book is absolutely brilliant. She fulfilled this reader’s need to know her late husband’s story in his own words. And that she had his memoir to draw from was such a gift. How many of us would love to have the writings of the people we have loved and lost?
While reading A Portrait of Love and Honor I couldn’t help wonder if the fictionalized love story was the true story of Weidener’s romance and marriage to a man who struggled through his West Point Academy education and of how their love and marriage overshadowed the colorectal cancer that later took his life.
Weidener is a wonderful writer. Her writing flows naturally and simply while not leaving out the necessary details important to her character’s lives. She started out as a journalist working for the “Philadelphia Inquirer.” That job unfortunately ended after her husband’s death, leaving her an unemployed single mom with two growing sons. She now works as a memoirist and novelist besides leading writing workshops, facilitating writing retreats, and editing other authors’ books. In fact that’s how I thought she met her husband, that he was looking for an editor to help him with his memoir. However, Susan set me straight. That was the fictionalized version of how they met, and the makings of a wonderful fairy tale.
However, whether fact or fiction, reality has a way ruining the road to happily ever after. Fortunately for Susan G. Weidener, she is happily writing wonderful books that we all need to read.
