Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

My Maggie is a rare and real love story. She was his childhood sweetheart and wife of 32 years. Diagnosed with hearing loss at the age of four, she wore cumbersome hearing aids and felt the humiliation of being "different" Slowly, an insidious disease robbed her of vision. She fought three diff erent cancers, changed careers in the middle of her life and fought to realize her dreams. Yet, underneath these great challenges, there was an incredible love shared by two people. It was cemented by adversity and reached a near perfect spiritual connection. They lived a classic old-fashioned love story. King shares one of the most powerful, complex and memorable love stories ever written. It is an American story of great heroism, courage and devotion. Maggie was a woman who understood how to lead a happy life and then led it. My Maggie is great drama, great passion, and great fun. It is a book written with a love so immense it almost defies description.
