Lovers and Spouses
By Liselotte Mettler & Elwin W. Law
Lovers and Spouses—A Story of Enduring Love, By Liselotte Mettler, and Elwin W. Law
ISBN 9780828326391 Paperback $19; ISBN 9780828326407 Kindle
This is the fascinating and true story of Dr. Liselotte Mettler—one of medicine’s great heroines, and of Elwin Wallace Law—an international financier with an American family history in finance. From the fateful day they met (Winter 1967), each fell in love with one another, resulting in an intense relationship. That love was to transcend time itself as well as fate and other personal circumstances. Together and separately, each made a mark on the world. Liselotte worked with the natives in the jungles of Perú; there, she came close to death during a plane crash where she landed in a tree whose branches saved her life. As a swimmer in Rome in the 1960 Olympics, she came close to winning the Bronze medal. Elwin, on the other hand, succeeded in the hard-driving real estate challenges in California. Despite divergent professional and private lives, both had a successful and happy family life but never lost their deep connection and memory of each other. Finally, in their seventies, they consummated that love through marriage. Presently, they enhance one another in what, admittedly, was made possible because of their enduring love for each other.
