When teenagers John and Alvetta married in the 1950s, many predicted that their marriage wouldn't last. Early on, however, they made promises to each other that would see them past their 50th anniversary. Although this book focuses more on the last two years of Alvetta's life and her courageous bout with cancer, flashbacks throughout show how two determined teenagers became successful citizens through their love and faith in each other.
Written during Alvetta's last two years, John's daily journal, poetry and flashbacks engage the reader through joy and triumph, pain and faith during the arduous end of life journey.
Alvetta is not just a tribute to a wonderful lady, but an insight into the strength and courage of the human spirit when faced with adversity.
