"Winter for Two" (153-214 the end)
This chapter goes back to the old man from the beginning of the book, reading a story to a old woman we now know is his wife (Allie) who has Alzheimer's. The old man is Noah. Allie of course told Lon it was over and went back to Noah and they have been married for 49 years.
He reads there story to her every day he can in hopes of bring her memory back. Some days a miracle happens and she comes back to him. But not for long.
I had to fight off the tears during this chapter. Its such a powerful and sad love story. The kind of love they have is amazing. They have had children together and grown old together and soon there lives will end. But they have lived full and happy lives filled with love. What more could you ask for.
I really enjoyed this book. It's one I will read again one day.
