Read by Richard Mitchley, David Shaw-Parker & Eric Meyers (Unabridged: 9hrs 18mins)
Featuring stories by F Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Hardy, James Joyce, Anatole France, Edith Wharton & more.
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. Love is perhaps the most difficult rejection of all. They are the one you want to be with. Its so obvious. You exist. But the reality is that for them, you are not the one. Every protestation, every effort, every act of love is rebuffed at worse, or kindly set aside at best. This union was clearly never meant to be.
