In the 1960’s a rock group called The Youngbloods produced a song titled “Get Together”—the content of this book is a reflfl ection of a lyric within that song—the words are: “We are but a moments sunlight fading in the grass.” No words can better describe the lives of two people falling in love and going through life’s journey experiencing both good times and tragedies. This book is an amazing story of true and enduring love. Life is like a book with a beginning, middle, and ending, and this story has all of those elements. For those people who are in love or are about to fall in love, this book is a way to fifi nd out what it means to be truly In Love. It is a view into the minds of two people who, through their “baby boomer” time line, build family, careers, friendships, and battle unforeseen events that change and rock their world. It is a way to show how love, devotion, and caring can make life worth living even through the roughest times. For those who have already read this book, the reviews have been ones of emotion, self-reflfl ection, and revelation. Comments have been: • A must read for the Baby Boomer Generation. • Fantastic. • An accurate time line covering forty years, • I couldn’t stop crying. • My life is similar to yours. • I didn’t know love could be so wonderful. • How did you get through life with all the bombs going off around you? Although this book discusses events from the 1960’s through the present, the story told crosses all generations, past, present, and future. The theme of love is timeless and the people in the book can be you, relatives, or neighbors.
