Here’s more from the release: “The book is a beguiling mixture of memoir and advice, and offers a unique insight into how an ordinary couple–albeit with millions of TV and Twitter fans–navigate their very public (and sometimes geographically distant) union. open up and share their deepest insights and advice, in a folksy, throw-back account of how two people fell, and stay, in love.”
