Overview

You will believe that love can last a lifetime. . .

Widowed and in his twilight years, Frank Trundle prefers to spend his evenings curled up with a plate of cookies, a pot of tea, and his mental scrapbook of memories of the life he shared with his beloved wife, Susan. Theirs was an extraordinary love that was expressed through the ordinary.

He had pursued her from the time they were both twelve years old-he a rowdy comic book aficionado and she the lonely new girl in town, sporting a pair of pink high-top sneakers and ordering a 7Up at the Woolworth's lunch counter when she caught his eye.

Through their courtship and marriage, through the highs and lows, mountaintops and valleys of life, Frank and Susan's story is centred around the place where it all began: at Woolworth's lunch counter, where they commit to meeting each other for a daily afternoon coffee date-rain or shine, come what may. This distraction-free time to focus on each other becomes a sacred ritual that keeps their love fresh and their relationship flourishing as they grow and change together through the seasons of life....
