Mary Christine Kane and Sandra Eliason: True Stories About Love Vol. 2




About the Book:

This collection of thirty-three beautifully written stories captures love in its many forms—love of romantic partners, parents, children, friends, animals, and passionate interests. These stories will inspire, motivate, and entertain. In the name of love, our storytellers suspended their beliefs, quit jobs, followed their guts, explored themselves, found courage, opened themselves up, and surrendered. There are stories where love truly overcame the odds, taught life lessons, and completely transformed lives. The anthology is edited by Judi Lee Goshen and Anne E. Beall.
