A personal reflection on the author's 44 year marriage, filled with blessings and challenges, which ended with the death of her husband.
"We shared the stage on which we played out the successive acts of our drama. A lifelong marriage is like a two-character play. On stage, in front of spectators, our lines come easier: we play to appearances. In private, one on one, the best lines are often silences" (p. 13).
