This personal story of a couple's long time love relationship captures their thoughts and feelings in a history that stretches over 30 years. It includes their correspondence of several years and contrasts with today's communication which is often electronic and brief. The setting on the Oregon coast is almost another character as it lends itself to nurture and strengthen their love. A theme throughout is the importance of family and how secrets may affect its solidarity and cohesiveness. Should they be revealed or should the common good of the family take precedence? Explore the minds and hearts of two people who don't want love to be a myth. Their language is rich, the emotions are stirring and the provocation to love well is strong.
