An inspirational, illustrated gift book offering a message of love and commitment for couples in all stages of matrimony.

Anyone who's ever said do nows that a successful marriage is not founded on love alone. It takes commitment, hard work, and patience to make the marriage work. Charlene Costanzo's latest book, The Twelve Gifts in Marriage, reminds us all what marriage is about and offers inspirational advice that couples of all ages will cherish.

Like Charlene's first two books, Marriage opens with a parable: An elderly couple warns a young bride and groom that their life together won't always be blissful or easy, but that their love will grow deeper with time if they remember to practice twelve innate gifts ong them strength, faith, and compassion. The book then illustrates the twelve gifts with powerful and poignant hand tinted photographs that offer an immediate, sensory connection to readers.

Like Charlene's first two successful books, The Twelve Gifts in Marriage brings a hopeful, inspirational message to its readers, from newlyweds to couples celebrating their Golden Anniversary.
