From the back cover: I wrote these meditations on love because I believe all of us share the same struggles with self-knowledge, thus discovering love's home, and finding the courage to be honest and bulnerable with our fellow travelers, whose lives mirror our own and from whom we desire love. I've often been helped over a stumbling block or down an unfamiliar path by a few thoughtful lines or a friend's well- chosen words. I hope what you read here will serve you in your search as others' words have served me in mine. ..... The Love Book is a celebration of life for anyone who has struggled hard to learn to express, and to accept, love.
