Description

Two childhood sweethearts meet again as adults, a young woman defies tradition, new love grows from the ruins of an earlier relationship, exiles find home in each other, love flourishes late in life, handwritten letters span the distance of oceans...We love to hear about love. In a world of bad news and bleak prophecies, it's life-affirming to hear a story with a happy ending. These are true tales of passion and perseverance, chance meetings, unexpected romance, lovers whose stars are un-crossed. There is sorrow here. There are questions, too, but no universal answers - and yet other people's happy endings inspire optimism in all of us. People have told the author about their personal experiences. She has listened to their unique voices and woven heartfelt stories from their words. All the chapters are about love, but together they are about life.
