The happiest day of Matt Logelin’s life was also the saddest: just 27 hours after giving birth, his wife Liz died. But while his memoir is heartbreaking—Liz never got to hold her daughter—it is ultimately uplifting, as Matt pays tribute to the woman he adored…and the goodness of strangers.
Their love began in high school, and after years of long-distance dating Matt and Liz were finally married. When she was expecting, and her pregnancy grew difficult, Matt began blogging. And it was this online “family” of over a million who, after her death, gave him the hope and fortitude to make a life for Maddy that would honor her mother’s memory. For all those seeking encouragement, Two Kisses for Maddy is a book to be cherished.

To those condemming Matthew for his language, what are you all so perfect that you never have cursed? I highly doubt that very much, and especially so when you have lost someone close to you. His anger and hurt feelings mushed together and having a new baby and becoming a parent. Some of us when upset and stressed ALL have the tendency to vent and curse. Give the man a break already and try and understand where his frustration was coming from.
I SO AGREE WITH ANNIE. WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A BEAUTIFUL LEGACY OF HIS WIFE TO HIS DAUGHTER WAS RUINED BY THE CALLUS USE OF THE "F" WORD. I STARTED READING AND THREW BACK IN THE BOX. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

If I had gotten this book from the library I would have taken it back without reading most of it. His language in the book was horrible. If this is the way he talks, then I wouldn't even attempt to read the blog. I wish there was a warning in the Editorial Review of the book about the language used, I would not have ordered it. Ruined the whole story for me! Would not recommend this book to anyone. Pray for him & Maddy
I started reading Matt's blog right after Liz died. This book fills in the spots that the blog left out. Written with raw emotion, it tells the story of a love most people only dream about. You will cry and you will laugh. But mostly, you will come away praying and cheering for Matt and Maddie.
