This is the down-to-earth experiences of Noel and Barbara in a growing love, the joys (and sometimes difficulties) of raising four children, life as a professor's family, and the renewing vigor of having a lake home as centering place for family and friends. The book is written in simple, direct language to describe the events and experiences of Noel and Barbara through their sixty-two-plus years of marriage and family life. It portrays the wonders in the uplifting life of a couple deeply in love with each other. While the marriage of Noel and Barbara was a rich experience, it was from the beginning an evolving experience. They were married only few weeks before Noel went out to Duke University to work on his PhD degree. This was the beginning of many fulfilling experiences from then on.
