In What We Do for Love, Ilene ("Gingy") Beckerman tells her funny, sometimes heartbreaking story, a story that every woman who's ever searched for love will recognize: The first crush. The phone call that doesn't come. The makeovers after the breakups. And the exchange of marriage vows. With poignant prose and drawings, Beckerman looks back on a lifetime of trying to find true love. She remembers sneaking out of the house to neck with her high school boyfriend, dancing cheek-to-cheek with her first husband, and settling down with her second husband - but even he is not the man of her dreams. Through it all, Gingy Beckerman holds on to the possibility that there might he someone out there who's just right for her. And, as it turns out, there is - "I never would have expected when I was a senior in high school that I wouldn't find love until I was practically a senior citizen".
