Does love real­ly con­quer all?

It tru­ly was love at first sight, even though Gayle was the Min­is­ter of Music in a Texas mega-church and Harold was a sec­u­lar Jew from New York. Fate brought them togeth­er. But des­tiny had some­thing else in mind.

From the Bible Belt to north­ern­most Rus­sia to the heart of the Jew­ish world, Dou­blelife is real­ly about the jour­ney with­in, to dis­cov­er who we are and who we are meant to be. Writ­ten as a series of let­ters to each oth­er, Dou­blelife allows the read­er to eaves­drop on the con­ver­sa­tion as it unfolds. At once fun­ny, heartrend­ing, and inspi­ra­tional, Dou­blelife is a sto­ry of find­ing love, trans­form­ing the spir­it, and over­com­ing what life sends you against seem­ing­ly insur­mount­able odds.
