SING ME TO HEAVEN: The Story of a Marriage

Margaret Kim Peterson, Author . Brazos $19.99 (225p) ISBN 1-58743-047-9

When most young people take vows of "in sickness and in health," they imagine that the "sickness" part will be decades down the road. But Peterson, who married her husband Hyung Goo Kim after learning that he was HIV-positive, had no such luxury. As Hyung Goo's HIV gave way to AIDS and the alphabet soup of diseases it engendered (CMV, MAC, PCP), their joy in one another grew. This memoir is a beautiful tribute to a marriage that Peterson compares to a garden she once strolled: even in the midst of winter, it was full of blooms. Determined to celebrate each moment they had together, the couple used their fine china every day and filled their lives with music, even during the last stages of AIDS. Perceptive, deeply theological, sometimes angry, and always honest, this piercing story invites readers to reflect on love, commitment and "till death do us part." (Sept.)
