Have you ever read a story that took you on an emotional rollercoaster? Did it take you from happy to sad all with the turn of the page? Remember the Sweet Things is just that kind of story. It’s the true story of a woman’s twenty-year marriage where she found the love she was looking for and truly deserved.
Remember the Sweet Things, written by Ellen Greene is a touching memoir where she talks about the love she found and the love she gained for herself. Ellen was divorced, with two children. After her failed marriage and an ill-fated relationship, she decided to move across the country from New Mexico to Massachusetts to start a new life for herself and her children. While there, she met her future husband Marsh. She found him to be kind, charming, and respectful. Since she just knew this amazing behavior wouldn’t last, she decided to write down everything he did wrong so when the relationship was over, she would be justified in getting out. However, she couldn’t find anything negative to add to the list. Instead, she decided to write all the good things (good deeds, jestures, and sayings) that he made.
