"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 poignancy that touches you on virtually every page."

--Wayne Coffey, New York Times bestselling author of The Boys of Winter

Ellen Greene's Remember the Sweet Things is a heartfelt, deeply affecting memoir of love, devotion, and a very special marriage, reminding us about what truly matters in life. Fans of Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach will appreciate this warm and loving remembrance that author Susan Wiggs calls, "a beautiful meditation on love and life, and an affirmation of the power of gratitude....A true gift to the reader."

Review quote

"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...."--Marilyn Johnson, author of The Dead Beat

Back cover copy

For twenty years, Ellen Greene kept a running list of the thoughtful, funny, touching things that her husband, Marsh, said and did. She wrote them down secretly, then shared them with him every Valentine's Day when he would find pages from her "Sweet Things List" tucked inside a card.

A lovely and poignant tribute to a man and a marriage, written with grace and candor, Remember the Sweet Things captures the kindness, sharing, humor, and affection that defined the Greenes' union and encourages us to acknowledge the goodness in our own lives and relationships.
