A story of the mid life marriage of two main characters, Rosemarie and Chuck O'Malley. I found it a little idealistic and sappy. It's time is the late 1970s. Perhaps if it took place in this decade it would have not seemed outdated. Greeley's thoughts about the Catholic Church are timeless and that made for good reading. ( )

It would have been more interesting to be a part of his life experiences instead of when he carried around a camera and snapped pictures. His wife was a bit too "horny" all the time and the children were introduced by have and had dones versus experiencing some of their life experiences along with them. It is unknown to me if this is fact/fiction. ( )
