Product Details


Together is a riveting account of a strong marriage tested when a routine medical procedure goes terribly wrong. Judy Goldman beautifully shows us the challenges and setbacks but also the triumphs as two people find strengths within themselves to create a new life together.”
–Ron Rash, author the New York Times bestseller, Serena
“Part love story, part medical mystery, Together explores the rich terrain of a marriage during a period fraught with uncertainty and stress . . . a celebration of what truly matters in life: the power of love, the importance of forgiveness, and the necessity of accepting that some things remain unknowable.”
–Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train and A Piece of the World

“Judy Goldman is that rare writer whose inward gaze forces her reader to gaze inward as well, revealing something both brutal and beautiful about the world in which we live. . . .I loved this book. I really loved this book.”
–Wiley Cash, New York Times bestselling author of A Land More Kind Than Home and The Last Ballad

In Together, Judy Goldman explores the many paths–both bumpy and blissful–that a happy marriage navigates over many years. Although a medical mishap sends Goldman on this exploration, ultimately she lays bare not illness but strength: strength of character and family and endurance and, mostly, love.”
–Ann Hood, author of The Book That Matters Most

“Honest and compassionate, Goldman’s book is a life-affirming story that celebrates the grit that goes into making a long-term marriage work. A moving portrait of ‘young love turning into old love’ in the face of unexpected life challenges.” 
–Kirkus Reviews

“Goldman offers a tender view of her marriage and a suspenseful account of her husband’s frustrating struggle to regain mobility . . . this loving tribute to her husband and to the solidness of their union will engage and inspire readers.”
Publishers Weekly

“Please read Judy Goldman’s Together. This memoir is funny and heartbreaking. It’s about a role-reversing love founded on grit and determination, true as a heart-aimed arrow.”
–George Singleton, author of Staff Picks
“Goldman’s Together is a beautiful, haunting portrayal of young love growing into old love despite the unexpected and stunningly swift changes life’s inevitable forward momentum can bring. This exquisite memoir doesn’t shy away from the hard truths of marriage; rather it confirms that marriage can mellow into something different, deeper, and far greater than young lovers ever imagine, despite crushing heartbreak along the journey.”
–Michel Stone, author of Border Child
“Anyone who has found themselves unexpectedly immersed in a loved one’s battle to survive with all its complications and trials will find Judy not just an engaging writer, but an indispensable companion in the struggle. Together touched me with its humanity and honesty.”
–George Hodgman, author of Bettyville
“Deeply moving and poignant, delicate and powerful, Together is a memoir about love and loss, acceptance and resilience.”
–Tova Mirvis, author of The Book of Separation
