New Love & Widened Horizons Later in Life
"Relish love in our old age! Aged love is like aged wine; it becomes more satisfying, more refreshing, more valuable, more appreciated and more intoxicating.”
— Leo Buscaglia.
“A heart-warming, eye-opening, life-affirming journey to the final frontier of romance--this is a beautiful book about the possibility of late-in-life love and the life-changing lessons we all can learn from those who have been lucky enough to find it.”
— Katie Couric
“In this inspiring exploration of fifteen late-in-life romances, Eve Pell illustrates the human appetite and capacity for romantic love at any age. As these men and women—widowed and divorced, gay and straight—share their stories of forging deep connections in their 60s, 70s, 80s and, yes, 90s, they deliver a heartwarming message: we are never too old for new love.”
— Jill Smolowe, author of Four Funerals and a Wedding: Resilience in a Time of Grief
“After two marriages and two divorces, Eve Pell, in her seventh decade, dared to love again. Sam Hirabayashi, whom she loved and lost, was the inspiration for this book. She decided to seek out others who found love in their final years. Her career as an investigative reporter served her in discovering such couples and learning their stories which, along with her own love story, she imparts with fluency and zest. Love, Again is a joy to read, full of humor and heart and sweet collective wisdom, a book for all ages.”
— Susan Trott, author of The Holy Man Trilogy
“I remarried at 75 and have followed 100 marriages from age 50 until death or age 90. Eve Pell knows what she is talking about. Her book is touching, eye opening, inspiring and very wise. In addition, it is beautifully written.”
— George E Vaillant M.D., author of Triumphs of Experience
