Miracle at Midlife

A Transatlantic Romance

Miracle at Midlife: A Transatlantic Romance 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 and research psychologist who works from her home in Connecticut. They conquer challenges of internal demons (mostly hers) and external threats (mostly kids, careers and culture) as they share adventures in their respective worlds and are both transformed as they create a life together. The tensions of their romance, often taking place across six time zones, are captured through fanciful and reflective letters and fax correspondence – flirting, musing, laughing, arguing and, sometimes, whining.

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.
