A Bird and the Dragon: Their Love Story: – A Memoir
A Bird and the Dragon: Their Love Story: A Memoir is a quick-read that touches the heart as it teaches. Falling in love happens but burnishing that exquisite attraction into consistent happiness that lasts a lifetime while building a blended family of his/her five teen age daughters is the challenge. As the five daughters grow they bring issues to be solved and their choices and heartaches become a part of the family fabric.
A Bird and the Dragon is a book for young middle-aged men and women disillusioned with their marriages and wanting suggestions on how to improve their situations. It is also for couples looking to try the second-time-around marriage while jointly raising their children. It can really have some fun and funny moments!
The author through her training and experiences uses story to weave into the narrative, techniques for handling or heading off problems with combining children into a blended family. This author's honest story-telling illustrates the couple's behaviors that keep the marriage real and vibrant "until death do us part."
