    I couldn't set this book down, even when I had something else to do!

    Mark Chmiel is currently a professor of mine and he is a very intelligent, understanding individual, and this book about him and his late wife is so inspiring and beautiful it makes me feel hope like only a few books do!!

    An incredible, endearing story of love and life!

    The Book of Mev is a tragic yet unforgettable love story. I sobbed through many chapters, perhaps it is because I knew Mev. She left us too young. She was an inspiring person who lived life to the fullest! She is missed by many and this world could use her passion for justice.
