Publisher's Summary

One Billion Seconds: There's Still Time to Discover Love delivers a powerful tale of how true love transcends time, tragedy, and a broken heart. Deeply in love, Poppy and Geoff still need help from Jesse, a relational choreographer, to help them manage life's ups and downs and the communication skills needed to maintain a mature relationship. But sometimes real life and true love don't mix.

Jesse's star couple break up and move to separate parts of the country. For the next 32 years - or one billion seconds - Poppy and Geoff lead separate lives, which include marriages, children, deaths, divorces, 9/11, and losing their own identities.

The beautiful story opens in happy times, featuring the two college sweethearts in sunny Florida over three decades ago. But their storybook romance comes to a screeching halt when Poppy graduates ahead of Geoff and returns home to Wisconsin. Initially, the young love was not enough for distance and naiveté.

"We were 21 years old and naive," Poppy and Geoff quip of their real-life break-up more than 30 years ago. "Through the writing of One Billion Seconds, we uncovered the implicit understanding of what makes relationships work and what can lead to their downfall; and, the short answer is to embrace vulnerability. We wouldn't have turned tragedy into triumph, gotten back together, or written a book without being 100% vulnerable."

This book not only entertains, it also inspires listeners to truly understand the value of vulnerability. It's more than a novel and not exactly a memoir; instead, One Billion Seconds is an inspirational tale that weaves the Spencers' real-life professional experiences as relationship consultants with their own love story.

I appreciate and feel inspired to find love again. I'm reminded that the third time's the charm!
