Through seven years as two familiar young people become an adult man and woman, a husband and wife and, eventually, responsible parents.

          For Better or Worse

Remember...the day a middle-aged woman sat down in a bus, and a Southern  Baptist minister gained national prominence?
Remember...the day a mysterious, intermittent "beep, beep, beep..." ushered in the dawn of the space age?
Remember...the day two American armies stood face to face at a Little Rock high school with bayoneted rifles that ushered in America's dawn of integration?
Remember...the day America tottered on the brink of nuclear war?
Remember...the day a line was drawn in the ocean, and the other guy blinked?
Remember...the winter day when America forever lost its innocence?
  For Better or Worse       
Seven years that changed the history of the world and the complexion of America.
Taking place in New York City, Chicago and Peoria Illinois, the characterizations and situations coinciding with historical events.
Paths crossed when he was five years old while crossing a street with his mother on the west side of Chicago. Eerily foretelling the young man's future, the same old man seen in  Brighton Beach, New York... seventeen years later.
Through seven years as two familiar young people become an adult man and woman, a husband and wife and, eventually, responsible parents.
Realistically written, humanly, visually sexual, be there as this love-to-hatred, hatred-to-love marriage entwines through the history of the mid-1950's into the '60's.
  The sequel to "Becoming"

Realistically written, humanly, visually sexual, be there as this love-to-hatred, hatred-to-love marriage entwines through the history of the mid-1950's into the ’60's.

Professional Reviews
For Better or Worse
This book is a fascinating story of a young man who has a true "love/hate" relationship with his young wife. Both struggle with problem over money, children and their respective parents. The author has pulled from personal experience [always a solid foundation] and woven in fictional relationships and memorable moments. At times I forgot this was a novel. The author has a remarkable handle on the descriptive phrase. The story is sound though a bit wordy. I enjoyed revisiting the 50's and 60's through Mitchel's eyes and think you will too.

Reader Reviews for "For Better or Worse"

Reviewed by Elizabeth Parker 12/21/2010
For Better or Worse is a descriptive story that delves into the heart of marriage as the title might suggest. When I started reading, I thought that I would automatically side with Marsha’s point of view for all accounts, but realized that at times, I could definitely see Mitch’s viewpoint as well.

In this fast-paced story, there is a varying temperature of emotions, witty at times, sarcastic at others and yet somewhat sad, as well.
As with any relationship there are bound to be arguments, debates, slight disagreements and/or even separation. There were a multitude of feelings in which I could find myself relating to. Anyone who has had a relationship of any type will discover that they have either done or thought the same thing during different parts of this read.
The author does a fantastic job of introducing his characters and providing background information from their past to bring the story to its finest potential.
An entertaining page-turner, I suggest adding this book to your library!

It gives an illustrious patina to oneself when one can say "I am a friend of the author"...
