This book has the power of a sledgehammer and the tenderness of the saddest love story. Be prepared to cry your heart out and learn about coping, about strength and about hope. - Ben Bradlee, former executive editor, The Washington Post It is to Livingston s credit that he speaks not in terms of a triumph over death but of a confidence, gradually won, that love is not lost. This sets Only Spring apart from much of the popular literature of hope and makes an important contribution that moves us to humanity in the embrace of mortality. - Booklist
