Read an excerpt book cover for Love Life

Helen Kimbrough doesn't lead an ordinary life because she isn't an ordinary woman. Her relationship with her mother is the first of many strong bonds in Helen's life. Teddy, her first love, is the disillusionment of adolescence; Stu, her first husband, has to leave before their marriage really has a chance; and, Fraser, an extraordinary friend, wants to show Helen how close two women could be.

Through one of her students, the sad and disturbed Gena, Helen finally meets Norm, who isn't afraid to change his life and even his ideals for the sake of their relationship. And, in the end, he must, finally, surrender the future.
