Synopsis:

From Jill Robinson, the author of Past Forgetting, comes a true story, coauthored with her husband, the English writer Stuart Shaw, about finding love when they both thought they were through with romance.

When Stuart and Jill first met, neither felt like a poster child for serious love. Stuart was recovering from the alcoholism that had wrecked his marriage and ravaged his career. Jill was recovering from a second failed marriage and believed she was done with love forever.

But then, in a crowded Connecticut diner, at about midnight, Jill caught Stuart's eye and shot him a look that said, I'm designed for you. Immediately drawn to Jill, Stuart asked, Would you like to come to my place for a cup of tea sometime?

What follows is a journey toward commitment. You hear it from both points of view: his and hers. If you've ever felt that your opportunity for love was gone, here's the lively story of the creation of a passionate marriage that will fill your heart with joy and hope.
