"I know how love feels -- exactly as Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence describe it in IT HAD TO BE US." --- V. Ulea, filmmaker

    

Elizabeth is a retired college dean who loves reviewing movies and interviewing celebrities. Harry delights in their discussions together about films. Since reuniting after being divorced and estranged for almost two decades, Harry and Elizabeth treasure their time with each other. Now retired from his work as an engineer, Harry plays golf as many mornings as possible, then drives Elizabeth to various entertainment venues for her coverage in the afternoons and evenings. Elizabeth says Harry is always one to see the wry humor in life. He makes her laugh every day, and that's one of the reasons she knew she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. IT HAD TO BE US is Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence's first book. According to Romantic Times Magazine, their little romantic memoir is "a heartwarming story that proves true love really does stand the test of time."

IT HAD TO BE US is now in the early stages of film adaptation.
