A provocative true story of an idealistic young woman, her two lovers, and the fateful decision that would forever change the course of their lives

Frustrated with the dating scene, Ann Garretson decided she couldn't leave love to chance. So she set her sights on "The One": her pen pal, Lieutenant Jack Sigg, a tank commander on the German-Czech border. In 1964, she skipped her college commencement to tour Europe with him, hoping to return as his fiancée. But a month into their rendezvous, her best friend, Terry, proposed marriage--by mail--throwing all their lives into turmoil.

Jack offered the military life Ann had grown up with. Terry, a conscientious objector, would leave for the Peace Corps at summer's end, unless the draft board intervened and sent him to jail. Her dilemma: she loved them both.

Ann had to make an agonizing choice--a choice made all that much harder by her meddling parents, Terry's passionate pleas, and Jack's irresistible charm.

A Rendezvous to Remember is an intimate portrayal of relationships in the early sixties, written by a young woman finding her way in a changing world and by the man she ultimately married. Beautifully written and delightfully uncensored, this coming-of-age memoir is a tribute to the enduring power of love.

"The story transcends personal autobiography alone, charting the course of not just two disparate lives, but a nation."--Midwest Book Review

"A love story you'll never forget."--Hope Edelman, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Motherless Daughters

"Humorous and heartbreaking, the dueling narrative is stunning, surprising, and inspiring."--Samantha Vérant, author of Seven Letters from Paris
