A Happy Marriage
A NovelBook - 2009
Enrique and Margaret Sabas have been married for 30 years. Now, Margaret is under hospice care in the final stages of cancer and asks Enrique to control access to her during her final days so that she can say good-bye to a select few on her own terms. Enrique does so, patiently waiting for his own turn. As he waits, he remembers their life together, from their first conversation forward. The story alternates between past and present, contrasting the budding and then mature relationship to the sad reality of its end.
