Portrait of a Marriage based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This has been my favorite and most cherished book since I can remember. The ups and downs of all marriages are unique- and some survive, and some don't. This book captures with genius the great soaring heights of lifetime love, and also the ugliness that is unavoidable if you stay with someone long enough. The characters in this story will be forever carried in your heart, never to be forgotten once you know them. An equally great story for men or women.
This is a wonderfully written story about love and faith that one must have in a marriage. It tells the story of a sensitive artist and his love for the daughter of a proud pennsylvania farm family. One is rich and the other is not. It is a great example of two people who come from different worlds and find love together.
