All in all, I enjoyed this novel. It is very long and can be rather slow in the storytelling. However, it is such an epic story that encompasses a couple's entire life as a couple.

It taught me that even when life seems over and seems like it will never get better, there is always the fact that it will all turn out okay in the end.
