WHEN A LIFETIME OF LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH

Together, they overcome family prejudices, separation, war, and loss. Their life becomes rich and full until the unthinkable happens. Maureen’s fear of abandonment rises to the surface and consumes her. Friends, family and ministers are helpless to lift her from her depression.
