    Loved it!

    By amplifying core moments and perspectives in relationships of all types, the author provides something that will speak to everyone who reads this collection. This is a book of beautifully written stories that will make you think - and probably, like me, make you laugh and cry, too. It's a quick read, but you'll think about its themes, and the details of your own relationships, long after you've finished. My favorite story? "Thirty-four Years and Six Months," which will make anyone who's been in love hug their partner tighter. I highly recommend this book!

    READ THIS BOOK!!!

    Picturing life as we know it today, in select words and snippets of conversation, Marcia has spanned the deepest and most heart-felt places in our lives. I laughed; I cried; I was silenced with the profound simplicity she created.
