ABOUT THE BOOK: This is the story of two
long-separated lovers who are finally reunited by the Internet. As Kahlil
Gibran once wrote, 'Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until
the hour of separation.' But when deep psychological wounds are suddenly
reopened by such a reunion, is it really worth all the suffering?
Although this moving book is actually a collection of intimate love letters
that pass between an unnamed man and woman--the impact is profound. For as the
great 12th century Abelard once wrote about his own Heloise, "People will say
things in letters they would never say in person. . . ."
In short, the erotic tension in these letters will leave you reeling. And the
ugly deception and secrets that can lurk beneath even the most perfect love
will leave you feeling uneasy and afraid. Yet this book remains--above all--a
love letter to love. As John Keats once wrote, "Love is my religion--I could
die for that."
The lovers in this story may one day rank amongst the greatest in literature,
with the likes of Antony and Cleopatra, Abelard and Heloise, Tristan and
Isolde, Dante and Beatrice, and Catherine and Heathcliff. In fact, it was
Catherine, herself, who once said about her own lover, "Our souls are the
same. . . . "
The same could be said for these two people as well.
