The tone of this book feels alot different than Joni's first book. Her first book was emotional, while this book has little emotion. I started to read this book expecting to hear more of Ken's voice and his take on loving someone with a disability; this is not what this book is about. It is truly about marriage and the history of their relationship. Thankfully, it does give a brief history about Ken, the mystery man. I did enjoy the last chapter, when Joni and Ken actually read their ending thoughts and advice. Overall, the book humanized them. They aren't perfect or angels. They are people who have struggles, just like everyone else.

Joni and Ken Tada seemed to me, as an outsider, that they had a perfect loving marriage, despite Joni's very dire disabilities. But I should have know better that sinful man and sinful woman do not have anything "perfect".... not until we have gone to glory with our Lord.
However, they are such a lovely, inspiring couple, who were not afraid to talk publically about the challenges of marriage, even between a Godly man and woman. They were very personal, revealed some of their sins and brought things into perspective when I look at my imperfect marriage to my beloved husband. I've learned, from reading this book, that prayer is SO very important and I need to pray for my husband much more than I have in the past. I hope that many couples read this book. Whether Christian or not, I believe they would plant seeds in the heart of an unbelieving couple. So this would make a great gift for an unbelieving couple who are struggling with their marriage, or, a Christian couple who are struggling!
We see a lot of ourselves in this very poignant story. And as I write this review, Joni and Ken are still with us on this earth. They can teach us a lot... because, you know, they really love Jesus.
A blessed and truthful book, I just loved it!

I have ordered several paper copies of this book to give out. One of the best and most helpful books I've read/heard in many-a-year. Told in a way which is never boring or dry.
