Aidan and Jenna had enjoyed a blissful union. Jenna embodied Aidan’s dreams: as his muse, his love, his very heart’s core, giving him four beautiful, wise children, and fulfilling a man’s deepest yearnings. She created a home of peace, contentment, inspiration—and refuge–from the immense pressures of winning “American Star”, which had rocketed him to the pinnacle of success, as a rare, evocative and thrilling pop singer.
Their love letters written (in “Price of Love”) during a heart-wrenching but drastically needed separation, tells the harrowing story of tumultuous new turns in their lives. Erratic changes in Aidan’s behavior—even evident in some of his letters–after his shattering, near-fatal car accident, were not anticipated by either of them. Nor was Jenna prepared for what would happen to the man she had worshiped, passionately loved, and thought she knew.
Their letters, during this two-month separation, trace the couple’s desperate struggle to keep their love, their marriage, and family, intact. The odds are stacked cruelly against them, both physically and emotionally, as Jenna’s leukemia-weakened body carries a new child, whose very birth might bring sadness and tragedy. Aidan’s brain-trauma journey is one from which he may not be able to recover. They both come to realize that these are the risks with which they are now faced.
Appearing in my Blog will be samples of these letters Jenna and Aidan wrote–to hold on to the rare bliss they have known as husband and wife. They are a testament to an enduring passion, a deep and committed love; and also, letters of their fears of losing one another, and anger at that possibility, after the extreme joys they had found together. Can they reach a new plateau of hope and renewal, of love and marriage, and their children’s future? This will be revealed in “Price of Love” in intimate detail: the story of a man and woman desperately in love, against staggering odds.
