Amusing, candid, and engaging, Marriage and Other Leaps of Faith displays universal aspects of marriage and an exploration of this human journey in other life leaps.

Greensfelder shows “…any long relationship can never be one thing at a time, only a counterpoint of feelings: resolute, funny, nostalgic, fearful, joyful and often astonishing.” (Diane Stevens)
