A Little Romance–it’s not just for Valentines Day!

luvAhhhh…Spring! It’s finally here and like Lord Alfred Tennyson penned: In the spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.

Or, as John Dryden proclaimed: Pains of love be sweeter far | Than all other pleasures are.

Lastly, Emily Dickinson wrote: That love is all there is, is all we know of love.

Below are a few titles revealing all kinds of love and affection, pulsing within each cover: from Edith Wharton’s “Ethan Frome” the classic tale of the hiss of an old love grown cold as well as the promise, thrill and redemption of a new lover; to an unlikely, but growing friendship and attachment between two prison cellmates in “The Kiss of the Spider-Woman;” to the hilarious daily journal of a young woman, Bridget, describing her none-too-suave exploits (think blue soup, trying to shed stones, and an inappropriate interest in her bad-boy boss) in “Bridget Jones’s Diary.”
