Gerald Pearson had been honest with Carol Lynn about his homosexual past, but both of them had faith that marriage and devotion to their religion would change his orientation. Love would conquer all. Then, after eight years of apparent happiness and the birth of four children, Gerald was no longer able to deny what he considered to be his essential self. Carol Lynn was shattered, her self-esteem all but destroyed. Their divorce, however, could not erase a lifetime of love and mutual support. Carol Lynn courageously stood by her former husband's side. Even when he contracted AIDS—and came home to die.
What Love Is tenderly unfolds the beauty of a marriage, from love's first kiss to growing old together. This lyrical book will be treasured by couples of all ages.
Carol Lynn Pearson is the author of more than forty books and plays, including Goodbye, I Love You and The Lord Is My Shepherd: Inspiration for Couples. She is also the author of a variety of poetry, musicals, and plays. She lives in Walnut Creek, California.
The perfect wedding gift.
"I didn't get run over by a truck." James turned the page of the newspaper and did not look up.
Christmas is coming, but there is hardly enough Christmas spirit in the Young household to fill a Christmas ornament. James has retreated to his shop, Della to her garden, and the children hardly speak to each other except to fight or grunt their disinterest.
It wasn't always this way. But Grandpa, once their spirit of Christmas, died last year, and with his passing, all the holiday lights went out.

The Christmas Moment, a modern retelling of O. Henry's classic The Gift of the Magi, brings to life again the wonder of true giving.
