About The Book:    What Love Becomes traces two marriages from their idealistic, yet misguided beginnings. As the years go by long simmering tensions explode and the couples' lives intertwine. At its heart, this story is about the choices we make, how they shape our lives, and how our innate resilience propels us toward reclaiming the lost parts of ourselves.
About The Author:   Jan Marin Tramontano is a novelist and poet. Her books include a novel, Standing on the Corner of Lost and Found, three poetrychapbooks, Floating Islands, A Woman Sitting in a Café and Other Poems of Paris and Paternal Nocturne, and her father's memoir, I am a Fortunate Man. Her poems also appear in her poetry collective's anthologies, Java Wednesdays and Peer Glass Review. She has had many short stories & poems published in literary journals.
