"I read Glenda Burgess' poignant and harrowing memoir, THE GEOGRAPHY OF LOVE, in one sitting-- in one breath -- and all I had ever felt about love's ability to vanquish everything, to swallow heartbreak, to correct history, Burgess makes us believe. And in a fashion that reads like a classic novel." –Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean.
