“What shines most brightly, however, is the couple’s romance. Melissa has created a testament not only to how much Newman and Woodward loved each other, she also honors how much they enjoyed each other…Melissa’s concentration on her parents’ storied love affair humanizes these film icons in a way that is instantly relatable and enviable.”
— Starred Booklist Review

"Beautifully captures [Newman and Woodward's] lives together and shows off their famed love affair...the fact that the bulk of the photos were taken by some of the 20th century's greatest photographers—including Richard Avedon, Gordon Parks, and Philippe Halsman—only adds to the appeal...A showcase of a singular romance that also serves as a broader demonstration of love."
