The Long Love by John Sedges



By Mike

This book was first published in 1975 and is set in the late 1800s.  It follows the love story of a couple through each stage.  We begin with courtship and then marriage and children, and all that goes along with that.  John is a bit of a workaholic, and Margaret has some issues of her own.  Can they make their marriage work?  Not only that, but can they live happy lives with each other?

This is a great American love story.  It isn't all love and happiness, but the love and pain of family as well.  It was a different time but it's still the same now.  Edward and Margaret could be any one of us.  This book shows the love and laughter of life, love and death.  It's a great story about life.

Shawn's Note:  This book is no longer being printed and is only available used.  We, however, believe if you can find a copy, you should snag it!  I personally loved this book as well.  Also, this book was originally written under the name of John Sedges, and later has been revealed to be a pseudonym.  The author's name is Pearl S. Buck.
