And The Greatest Of These Is Love
Letters To Iris by Elizabeth Noble is a beautiful contemporary novel about life and love. It is bittersweet and will tug at the reader’s heartstrings. You cannot ignore this book. It will elicit a response from you.
There is so much in this book but it can be summed up in just one word – love. A love that hangs on. A love that will not die. A love that motivates. A powerful, all consuming love.
There is the very sad theme of Alzheimer’s. “Far too proud to let anyone see that anything was wrong.” Alzheimer’s is a cruel disease robbing us of our loved ones bit by bit till only memories remain. “The only silver lining in the whole… awful cloud… They don’t know.”
Our lives are not meant to be lived in isolation. Our lives intersect with others at just the right moment. Shared experiences with strangers will form a bond and a support at some of the darkest times.
