Author's true story of his wonderful second marriage with his wife who fights a debilitating illness

PR Newswire

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- How does a couple find strength, love, and happiness amidst the bad circumstances they face?  Author William Zuspan shares his true story of a second marriage for two people who married later in life, after failed first marriages, and would have lasted long were it not for the nagging illness of his wife, who, despite a positive attitude and the help of her husband, ultimately succumbed. Readers get to meet a Woman of Valor as they get to know the author's wife in the pages of this autobiography. 

In this book, readers will follow a second marriage that was both wonderful and tragic: the breakup of a career and a growing love that could not last because of illness; a joyous union that lifted both husband and wife above day-to-day problems; the story of success after failure; and a picture of a woman who left a beautiful mark on life.

Bill and Lois first met when they were teaching at the same Sunday school and hit it right off very quickly.  But she did not return for the next school year – and they didn't see each other again for nearly ten years.  Lois's re-appearance into Bill's life was the start of a beautiful friendship, which turned into a romantic relationship, and then into a marriage that was founded in trust and a deep love for one another.  Lois had become the calming angel in Bill's life, something he didn't experience with his ex-wife.  Bill had become the rock that she could lean on, something she didn't feel with her ex-husband.  And through Lois's debilitating sickness, Bill was there for her, up to the last moment, sharing in her courage, suffering and happiness.
