Larry Indiviglia's 126 Days, 11 Minutes: Our Love Story is a story of love and compassion, unlike anything you may have read before. Larry was 64 when he met Gayle. He got divorced some years ago, and he was ready to find his soulmate. Larry didn’t let the heartbreak of the past stop him. He found the woman of his dreams in Gayle, a 68-year-old dashing beauty with a huge heart, a soft spot for Tango, and the resolve of a soldier. She was fighting off stage 4 breast cancer with a spirit that could rival even the fiercest of battle heroes. A connection online turned into the most beautiful 126 days of his life. This their story of love, friendship, and companionship that transcends age and life.
At first, I could not understand how the cover of the book complemented the story, but as I read, I realized the book would be incomplete without the cover. I adored the chapter titled The Scent of a Woman. That was something special, something personal and so very beautiful. I read a lot of romance, but very few of them had ever touched me as this one did. That final chapter was cathartic yet so very heartbreaking at the same time. I enjoyed the narrative a lot because it was open, transparent, and incredibly rich in detail. Larry didn’t hold back when he shared his happiness with readers and didn’t hold back when he shared his grief. Larry Indiviglia's 126 Days, 11 Minutes is one of those novels that I read in one sitting because I didn’t want to let Gayle and Larry go.
