The matters of the heart are such a complex and complicated
I just finished reading this book by Elizabeth Gilbert.
I was given her first book EAT, PRAY , LOVE when it first came
out and I loved it!
You could say this book picks up where the first book left off.
She meets her Brazilian-born love, Felipe, in the first book
and now she is faced with marriage due to
Felipe not being allowed to come into the U.S. on
return from one of their many travels.
They are effectively, “sentenced to wed” or
leave this country forever. In this book she
shares how she and Felipe wandered across Southeast Asia
while they waited for all the paperwork to be handled.
While waiting and traveling Elizabeth talks with many women
along the way and does a lot of research on the topic of marriage.
One of the most touching stories is the story of her own
grandmother and the wine colored coat with the fur collar…
I would relate the story but, if you wish to read this book I think it
best to let you come across the story in the book.
Whether you are married or not I highly recommend this book.
It was interesting being a voyeur in her life and her historical research
