Gladys, My Unforgettable Love
Antonio E. Morales-Pita
This loving, honest, and heartfelt memoir is a compelling retelling of Dr. Morales' courtship and marriage with the woman in his life. Because this memoir is so honest and deeply narrated, it is far more interesting than too-often sanitized memoirs of lives lived. Dr. Morales-Pita makes us feel what real love means. Citing his own words “to love and to be loved is a big human achievement.” “In this same world full of wars, miseries, terrorist threats, hatred, and conflict, there is also tenderness. We have to discover this wonderful feeling in ourselves, our families, and our friends and to enjoy it as long as there is life. It would be a good way to comfort us in times of grief.” This book pursues the objective of improving couples' love relationships by means of learning, assimilating and implementing Gladys Morales' ways of living an exemplary love relationship for more than forty years under stressful economic, political, and social environments.
This is a deserved tribute to the woman who inspired this book. The author — through his narrative — transcends an example of a man, who honestly reveals his thoughts, feelings, and total transformation under the influence of his extraordinary wife.

I invite everyone to read the story of a deep loving experience lasting forty years, six months and one day until death separated the couple. This is a deserved tribute to the woman who inspired this book. The author — through his narrative — transcends an example of a man, who honestly reveals his thoughts, feelings, and total transformation under the influence of his extraordinary wife. ”
