    " (Non-fiction Memoir- Marriage) For twenty years, Ellen Greene presented her husband Marsh with a list of all the sweet things he did every single Valentine's day. They lived an adventurous life sailing and building a house in Mexico. This book inspired me to treasure each day with my husband and make more of an effort to take note of the sweet things he blesses me with every day. I recommend this book for those who enjoy marriage memoirs. This book could even be a great gift for a engagement party or a wedding gift. "

    " A non-fiction tale of two soul-mates who genuinely cherished each other. Wonderful premise but overall the book was boring. In a sentence, jot down the kind things your loved one does for you so you never forget to cherish those moments. "

    " The man described in this book seems too good to be true, but aside from that, this is a sweet love story, very readable, and a nice escape. Perhaps we could all benefit from focusing on the good things we do for each other, instead of what isn't done or said. "
