In 1968 I, a Catholic senior in college, met a seventeen-year-old Jewish boy at the high school where I was doing a practice-teaching assignment. Seven weeks later, we were engaged. Forty-five years ago, this news was not well-received! We had not one but three strikes against us: differences in religion, age, and education. We married anyway, and celebrated our 43rd anniversary last month. STAR CROSSED, my memoir of our two-year courtship, will be released this fall through the Headwinds imprint of Hard Press Editions. My fondest hope is that it will inspire other couples who are considering taking the interfaith challenge.
