Between Two Eternities - a mainstream romance novel by Barbara Brett

What would you do if you learned that the person you love more than life itself was destined to die soon—and he or she asked you to help ease the inevitable end? Would you do it? Could you do it?

Between Two Eternities is the unforgettable story of Robert and Marcie Silver. Married ten years, with two adorable children and successful careers, they are more in love than ever. They have everything to live for. But a terrible secret is breaking Robert's heart: he knows that Marcie is about to die of an inoperable brain tumor. The doctor tells Robert the heart-shattering news first so that he can be better prepared to help Marcie when she learns the devastating contents of his report. But Robert cannot bear to let Marcie know the truth. There was so much he had longed to give her, things that will now and forever be impossible. The least he can do is make her last days happy and free from the knowledge that death is hovering over her. Despite the doctor's strong objections, Robert insists that Marcie be given a false and hopeful diagnosis.

And so begins the spinning of the web of love lies. How long will Robert be able to keep Marcie entwined in it? She is a bright and curious woman. As her symptoms intensify, will she search for, and find, the truth on her own? And if she does, how will she react to the truth? And react to Robert, who has been hiding it from her? And how long will it be before Robert begins to feel strangled within his web of deception?

Between Two Eternities is the heartrending story of a young husband's struggle to protect his wife from a terrible truth, and then of their desperate search to find together the courage to live with it. It is the haunting account of their quest for answers to life's most painful questions. And it is the unforgettable chronicle of the breathless romance that comes to mean more than life itself—and that suddenly demands the ultimate sacrifice from both of them.
