    Review quote
    "Cleaving is a wondrous love story. It speaks of the terness and dangers of eros as well as any book I have read, but it is the book's burning spirituality that stays with you."-- Pat Conroy "This marriage can be seen as a nest of contradictions: sacred and profane; sterile and fertile; faithful and marked by betrayal . . . As a love story this is both disturbing and exhilarating, but it leaves the reader wanting to sp more time with these very honest and vital people."--"Booklist", Starred Review "This raw, emotional memoir of a 20-year marriage is unforgettable . . . Highly recommed."--"Library Journal", starred review
