My book tells the story of how we met (Sandy living in Washington State and me in Belgium, 5,000 miles away), details experiences we had during our first visits back and forth until she moved in with me in Antwerp, our move to Grimbergen near Brussels, where we lived for almost thirteen years, and our final move back to the USA.
In addition, the story takes readers to a number of European cities, particularly Belgium's main Flemish cities (Brussels, Bruges, and Antwerp) and Paris, France. Many of these memories relate to our favorite local places and friends, spiced up with amusing anecdotes.
It all started with some postings on Facebook, after Sandy passed away, and grew into full stories, inspired by the reactions of my readers.

From my editor's critique letter:
I think you've written a wonderful story. It beautifully illustrates the deep love you and Sandy had together, and it's a fine tribute to her. One of the strengths of your book is your unique "voice" and perspective on life and on your relationship with her. It's also just plain fun to read, from the interesting descriptions of various places in Europe and America to the funny anecdotes.
