Everything I Have Is Yours: A Marriage

A pair of memoirs, Aurelia, Aurelia from Kathryn Davis and Everything I Have is Yours from Eleanor Henderson explore the joy and sorrow of their marriages and lives. At the center of Davis’s book is  the death of her husband, Eric. The book unfolds as a study of their marriage, its deep joys and stinging frustrations.  

Henderson’s book, emotional, intimate, and at times agonizing, tells the story of a marriage tested by powerful forces outside both partners’ control. It’s not only a memoir of a wife’s tireless quest to heal her husband, but also one that asks just what it means to accept someone as they are.
