A MEMOIR OF ENDURING LOVE AND SEARING LOSS

01 CoverFront RGB

An intimate rendering of the long romance between the author and her husband, popular Houston Columnist Leon Hale.

They seemed the unlikeliest of couples. He was sixty, a “country boy” who wrote about rural Texans with humor and sensitivity. She was thirty-six, a city girl and one-time socialite struggling in her career while raising a young son. No one thought it could work, but it did.

After he died in 2021 during isolation from the pandemic, searing levels of grief and doubt threatened Babette’s understanding of the partnership that had sustained her for forty years.

In the evocative and lyrical prose for which she is known, Babette Fraser Hale explores the distorted perceptions that often follow the death of a cherished spouse, and the loving resolution that allows life to go on.
