Love Letters of Great Men
In the film of Sex and the City a wonderfully and devastatingly romantic book of love letters (by such "great men" as Beethoven, Lord Byron, Mozart and Napoleon) is tantalisingly featured. Now, that collection never actually existed, but it certainly should have done. All of the letters were real, they just needed collecting together. Happily, editor Ursula Doyle has done a sterling job gathering these enchanting and enticing epistles and now Love Letters of Great Men really does exist. Read, melt, and dream that one day your man pens you something half as swoon-worthy!
William Congreve thought "love is a delicious poison", Henry VIII thought "Love can scorch like the heat of the sun", Flaubert thought love could "penetrate the depths of one's heart like a cooling rain". If you don't believe those guys (and, I'm with you, I'm thinking Henry VIII shouldn't be trusted on this!), revel in the lovely wisdom of Oscar Wilde, Robert Browning or Pliny the Younger.
A fabulous collection that will make the most hard-hearted question their frosty ways. Indulge: one for you, and one for your other half! by Mark Thwaite
