Bassett and Vance tell their life stories, the book switches from one to the other at each chapter. Then after they meet and are married their narratives are combined. Their love story was interesting, as was the story of how they became parents (through a surrogate mother). Sometimes I felt like they were glossing over certain things and not going very deep (but of course that is their choice in how much of their personal stuff they want to share). It reads very conversationally and towards the end they share how their faith has help ground them. It was an enjoyable read. ( )
