Normally I put my book reviews under the "Books" tab at the top, but this book was so good I wanted all of you to read about it.
The Geography of Love is a memoir by Glenda Burgess. It's a love story about her relationship with her husband and eventually his cancer. I read a lot of memoirs, biographies & autobiographies, but this one really moved me.
The emotion in her writing & storytelling caught me in a place that few books do. I cried. I felt her story. But unlike some writings about cancer, even through the agony & ugliness there is always beauty in her tale.
I would recommend this book to everyone, it will really move you.
