Love. Perhaps the one word solution for everything. An emotion, a state of mind that we strive for, search for. A wondrous force that binds, inspires, and a force that can spin out of control; unbalanced and fragile. Love reflects, changes and embraces us all.
In this series we explore the many facets of love through literary talents that span both time and country. The Classic Love story is one that we all love to hear. But by classic do we mean the same story just retold again and again? In this volume our authors definitely take that on board but their narratives also bring different views, different understandings, greater depth, an emotional palette of hues and tints that fully colour this thing that we call love.
