In the book award-winning journalist Maria Shriver calls, "a testament to love, resilience, and choosing joy during the toughest times,” Maslin tells the raw, unflinchingly honest story of a young love left broken, and the resilience required to mend a life and remake a marriage. At the heart of this captivating story are the universal truths that bind us all.
