Details: Product Description In her most personal and inspiring book yet, New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Somers shows readers how to shape a healthy, lasting relationship through the lens of her fifty-year love affair with her husband, Alan Hamel. For the first time, Suzanne will expose the inner workings of her marriage: a winning combination of love, business, and family. Starting from the very beginning, when a big-city guy from Toronto met a small-town girl from San Bruno, California, readers will get a behind-the-scenes perspective on Suzanne’s groundbreaking success as a TV star and Las Vegas diva, multiple-bestselling author, and successful entrepreneur and businesswoman, along with her more personal life as a mother, partner, and ultimately self-fulfilled woman. Through fame, fortune, sickness and blended families, Suzanne and Alan have kept the vitality of their marriage alive— together 24/7 (and haven't spent a night apart in 37 years), and combining business savvy in their constantly evolving relationship. Now, Suzanne reveals hard-won advice on how to rely on another person without sacrificing individual strengths. In this mixture of love story, memoir, and practical guide, readers, too, will discover how to forge and maintain a true partnership that’s built to last.  Review "Authentic and real: a love story that is inspirational and filled with helpful insights that can help us all find true and lasting love." --  John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus About the Author SUZANNE SOMERS is the author of twenty-six books, fifteen of which are  New York Times bestsellers, including the #1  New York Times bestsellers  Sexy Forever,  Knockout,  Ageless; Tox-Sick;  I'm Too Young For This!;  Bombshell;  Breakthrough;  Keeping Secrets;  Suzanne Somers' Eat Great, Lose Weight;  Get Skinny on Fabulous Food;  Eat, Cheat and Melt the Fat Away; Suzanne  Somers'  Fast & Easy; and  The Sexy Years.

Chapter 1 In the Beginning Nothing’s impossible I have found, for when my chin is on the ground, I pick myself up, dust myself off and start all over again. —­Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields, “Pick Yourself Up” Alan Hamel is an interesting guy, and I would say that even if he weren’t my husband. That we even met is the stuff of dreams; he was the son of Polish immigrants who luckily escaped from the jaws of Hitler. His father lived in a settlement called Little Pietrokov on the Polish-­German border with dirt floors and thirteen children. Somehow in 1905, at thirteen years old, he managed to get the equivalent of eight dollars (an enormous sum of money at that time) to ride steerage on a ship to America. With that many children, it probably wasn’t noticed much when he took off on foot to Bremen to a new life. He wanted to get himself to Texas and become a cowboy. Speaking no En­glish, amazingly he did just that. And then eventually at sixteen, he wound up in Chicago, where he was clubbed over the head and blinded in his right eye by police on horseback who were rounding up union troublemakers. (He was not one of them, just a casualty.) That incident led him to seek out relatives who had immigrated to Canada, and that is where he stayed. Alan’s mother’s mother also emigrated to Canada, but she became lonely and returned to Poland. Sadly, once back home again, she was rounded up by Hitler in the worst of ways along with boxcars of her family and met with an unthinkable death. Alan’s mother wanted to expose him to all cultures, so as a young boy he was sent to Knox Presbyterian Church for his first year in nursery school. That year he was chosen to perform in the Christmas play and dressed up as one of the three wise men. He carried one of the gifts to put under
