As Audrey Hepburn said, “Paris is always a good idea.” Especially for amore!
MIRACLE AT MIDLIFE: A transatlantic Romance (SheWritesPress) by Roni Beth Tower is a memoir chronicling the two-year courtship between a divorced American attorney living on a converted barge in the center of Paris and an empty-nested clinical psychologist who worked from her home in Connecticut. Roni Beth Tower and David Griff conquered challenges of internal demons (mostly hers – he’d see her thighs) and external threats (mostly their kids – 2 each, careers and culture) as they shared adventures in their separate worlds and created a life together. The tensions of their romance, often taking place across six-time zones, are captured through letters and fax correspondence.
Throughout their journey, stories of courage, joy and integrity bring hope and delight to those who wonder how romantic love appears and evolves; inspiration to people in mid-life who, knowingly or unknowingly, have completed a chapter in their lives and are ready to move on; and comfort to anyone who longs to wrestle and conquer the demons of fear, born of history or of the unknown, and win. Testimony that love is real and knows no age limit!
Roni Beth Tower earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from Yale and later cross-trained at Yale Medical School, studying closeness in married couples. Now a retired psychotherapist and professor, she and her husband live in Tarrytown, New York.
