UN-REMARRIED WIDOW by Ardis Henderson

In this poignant memoir a free-spirited young woman falls deeply in love and changes her life completely. It is not only the tragic story of a husband lost too soon in the Iraq war but a story of discovery, of love and hope. In impeccable prose, Artis chronicles the years bookended by the loss of two men, her father and her husband, each of whom she knew for only a short time but each of who had a profound impact on her life and on the woman she has become. The book beautifully combines the love story of her parents and her own love story. It is a book that will make you cry but also lift you up and renew your belief in true love.
