'I end this letter with one word. Farewell.'
What a beautiful book filled with some of the most beautiful love stories that are ever told - those of star-crossed lovers. All that happens when love is in play is not joyous and right and fair - sometimes things go awry or tragedy strikes ... for me, here in lies the beautiful torture that is life and love. These love stories both true and fictional show the power of love and the many ways in which love can be expressed and grow in our lives.
The book included short summations of 18 love stories throughout history - my favorite of which was one I had know before... That of J.R.R Tolkien and Edith Bratt. Their love story so strong that Tolkien immortalized their love through 'The lay of Beren and Luthien' and the epic love of Aragorn and Arwen in the Lord of the Rings. Both tales cast his lady love as a high elf, the best and most beautiful of her kind, who gave up her immortality for the mere mortal man who held her heart.
My other favourite is another true story - that of June Carter and Johnny Cash. After years of merely the friendship the pair finally found their happy ending... and it was death do us part.
'You see Mr Right don't always come along at the most convenient time.'
The book contains a number of famous love stories of literature such as Heathcliff and Cathy, Romeo and Juliet and Buttercup and Westley. True stories, not so well known - to me at least, including Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor and the bittersweet story of Opheous and Eurydice from Greek Mythology.
