Publisher's Summary

After her first divorce, Ellen gave up on marriage - but then she met Marsh Greene. Over the next 20 years, Ellen secretly wrote down all the thoughtful and caring things her husband said and did in her "Sweet Things List". In Remember the Sweet Things, Greene recalls these memories, sharing an honest account of her own love story, and reminding listeners that true happiness in marriage can be found in the smallest actions.

What the Critics Say

"What could have been a saccharine story filled with clichés is instead a gentle and genuine reminder that the smallest things in life are the most precious. This is a heartfelt tribute to what really matters." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Very touching memoir of a wonderful marriage"

    As a husband, I don't usually read (never read) books of this nature,but I guess that I was intrigued by just the nosiness factor like reading Dear Abby, etc. I thought that I might also get some ideas about self-improvement! I discovered that I have a long way to go to keep up with this husband. In short these two had such a loving, kind, accepting relationship that I was almost moved to tears in some places. It may also help that they seemed to be pretty affluent and that may have shielded them from money issues that plague most of us (or maybe not!).The narrator was excellent also, and I had to keep reminding myself that she was not the author since the book was written in first person. A very heartwarming account.
