Love  between  a  man  and  a  woman  is

Overview

Love  between  a  man  and  a  woman  is  undoubtedly  one  of  the  most  beautiful  and  spiritual  exchanges  between  two  human  beings.  It  is  also  one  of  the  most  tragic,  particularly  when  alcohol,  drugs,  dysfunctional  families,  and  a  life-threatening  liver  disease  are  thrown  into  the  mix.  Loving  Joe  Gallucci  is  one  such  love  affair.  It  is  the  extraordinary  romantic  tale  of  Meg  Flaherty,  daughter  of  an  eminent  Massachusetts  senator,  and  Jimmy  Romano,  a  blue  collar  boy  always  trying  to  prove  himself  to  the  imperious  Flaherty  clan.  Taking  place  over  a  period  of  thirty  years,  this  novel  chronicles  the  tumultuous  courtship  and  marriage  of  a  husband  forever  struggling  with  heroin  and  cocaine,  and  a  wife  whose  fidelity  to  him�throughout  his  addictions,  and  later,  through  his  bout  with  hepatitis  C�is  extraordinary.  More  than  anything,  Loving  Joe  Gallucci  is  a  story  of  redemption,   of  the  resurrection  of  the  Romano  family  through  the  triumph  over  adversity,  and  through  faith,  hope,  and  unconditional  love.  In  its  final  analysis,  this  book  is  a  call  to  arms  against  a  liver  disease  so  subtle  and  yet  so  damaging  that  it  could  perhaps  be  called  the  AIDs  epidemic  of  the  twenty-first  century.

Kate's writing style has vastly improved since 'Thirty Years In September: A Nurse¿s Memoir'. She has combined her nursing experiences with life experiences to retell the story of her friends that grabs the heart and soul of the reader. This thirty-year chronicle proves it¿s not just today¿s society that has to deal with the addiction of alcohol and drugs. A new awareness of Hepatitis C evolves through this beautiful and compelling love story.
