George and Lizzie have radically different understandings of what love and marriage should be. Over the course of their marriage, George is happy but Lizzie remains ... unfulfilled. When a shameful secret from Lizzie’s past resurfaces, she’ll need to face her fears in order to accept the true nature of the relationship she and George have built over a decade together.
With pitch-perfect prose and compassion and humor to spare, "George and Lizzie" is an intimate story of new and past loves, the scars of childhood, and an imperfect marriage at its defining moments.
Nancy Pearl speaks about the pleasures of reading at library conferences and to literacy organizations throughout the world. She is a regular commentator about books on NPR's Morning Edition. Check her out at nancypearl.com.
