Shelfari edited the description of Ode to Elliott Saturday, October 27, 2012.
Maggie and Elliott have been married for eight years, but on the morning of December 14th, 2001, Elliott tells Maggie he wants a divorce as the taxi in the driveway patiently awaits Maggie to take her to the airport. Maggie kisses Elliott goodbye as she is about to go to Paris for two weeks, but ends up extending her travels to Amsterdam and Prague. We follow her on her journey and experience her excitement as she discovers new corners of the world and explores other cultures- all whilst coping with the pain of the end of a great love story. Told in diary form, "Ode to Elliott" is a memoir of light entering the heart once the shell finally cracks open.
