...a gentle and genuine reminder that the smallest things in life are the most precious. This is a heartfelt tribute to what really matters."

Publishers Weekly Review

"REMEMBER THE SWEET THINGS" is, on its surface, the story of a happy marriage. But it’s much more—a beautiful meditation on love and life, and an affirmation of the power of gratitude. Told in a clear and honest voice, its indelible message—that it’s all the sweet little things that add up to an extraordinary love—is a true gift to the reader.”

— New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs

“Ellen Greene tells us how “happily ever after” works, and she does it with such grace and candor that even the unluckiest and most cynical will take note. This is what marriage could be if we paid attention. This is what life could be if we understood that someday it has to end.”

Marilyn Johnson, author of The Dead Beat

REMEMBER THE SWEET THINGS isn’t merely a love story. It is a manual for healthy living, told with searing honesty and profound tenderness, and poignance that touches you on virtually every page. Far from a preachy and pedantic how-to, Ellen Greene’s narrative is a real-life chronicle of kindness and consideration, of all the words and deeds that go into making any human relationship flourish. I didn’t just savor REMEMBER THE SWEET THINGS. I am a better person for having read it.”

Wayne Coffey, author of the New York Times bestseller, The Boys of Winter
