Catch and Release- Twice in a Lifetime
Catch and Release—Twice in a Lifetime is the unusual story of Maria S. Bursen and the love of her life, Jonathan (Jon) M. Bursen. At their first meeting, attraction for each other was instant, mystical, and permanent; they became “soulmates.” After an eight-year courtship, a strange series of events resulted in their complete separation for 24 years. Through these years, Jon, a talented and respected forensic psychiatrist with many devoted friends, never married and never forgot the love of his life. Eventually realizing that he must find her, he began an intensive search. After finally locating her, their marriage soon thereafter lasted only 3 years before a tragic ending. This memoir is Maria’s way of preserving memories of the man she adored from their first meeting.
