Ellen Greene

For twenty years, Ellen Greene kept a running list of the thoughtful, funny, touching things that her husband said and did. She wrote them down secretly, and each Valentines Day, he would find pages from her "Sweet Things List" tucked inside a card.

In this beautiful tribute to a man and a marriage, Greene intersperses selections from her "Sweet Things List" with recollections from their years together. Heartrending and frank, this unabashed love story tells of selfless acts and shared adventures, as it reminds us once again to pay attention to the goodness in our lives and our relationships.

Chamaigne Montana and Caroline Kilbourn host this week's episode of Writers' Voices with Ellen Greene talking about her book, "Remember the Sweet Things".
