The Geography of Love

LibraryThing book review...
The Geography of Love by Glenda Burgess

Glenda Burgess finally meets her Mr. Right, Kenneth Grunzweig, and she had just about given up. Ken has been married twice before, is widowed, and is 13 years older. He also has a daughter with whom he shares a turbulant relationship. Most women would run, but Glenda stays believing in this man. They share a great love, have two children of their own, and have fifteen good years together before tragedy strikes...cancer.

This memoir really touched me and brought me to tears several times. This is a love story about two people, who despite everything, fell madly in love and had a beautiful, passionate relationship. It is also a very sad story, the story of tragic illness and how to survive it with dignity. This is one you won't soon forget.

I think you will need something light and fluffy after this book and your last book.

Good review.
