In The Book of Love, you will find more than a collection of haiku-styled poems, “petite histoire” (little stories). They are timeless moments that capture present events in the lives of couples in the present, past or a thousand years from now. Each is a meditation intended for those contemplating their romantic condition. They are set within the context of the story of an old couple who has spent a lifetime in love. He, now aging, leaves his wife with the wisdom and faith to carry on after he is gone. He tells a tale of unfathomable time and asks her to contemplate all the events, which needed to coalesce so that they would be joined together for a lifetime. These events are captured for all eternity in The Book of Love. Each of the one-hundred-three-stanza, two-line, free-verse haiku is intended to gently toss a pebble into the pool of the reader’s mind. The thoughts that ripple out paint a picture completed by the reader’s imagination. Find your resting spot within these pages and share it with the one you love.

Es erzählt von der bemerkenswertesten Frau des Mittelalters: Mathilde von Tuszien, Gegnerin eines Kaisers, Gemahlin eines Papstes und Hüterin des wahren Evangeliums Jesu Christi, das man das Buch der Liebe nennt.

Once there was a gospel written in Christ's own hand: a treasure of almost unimaginable magnitude, referred to by the Cathars of medieval France as The Book of Love... Fresh from her successful search for the long-hidden scrolls written by Mary Magdelene, journalist Maureen Pascal now finds herself on the trail of the legendary lost gospel known as the Book of Love. But just as there were those who would stop at nothing to seize and suppress the Book of Love seven centuries ago, so there are those today who are equally determined that its radical message should never be revealed. In a race across Italy and France, new dangers await Maureen and her lover Sinclair as they begin to uncover secrets and shine new light on the hidden corners of Christianity. Combining expert research with dazzling plot twists, The Book of Love is sure to thrill readers as they follow Maureen's search for clues through some of the world's greatest art, architecture and history, until a potentially fatal encounter reveals the Book of Love to her -- and to us.

As a behavioral scientist, Professor Nicole Hathaway’s work strips away the foolish mystique that surrounds the human mating dance. When her academic tome is treated as a viral “love manual” her ecstatic publisher books her to appear all over the U.S. and Europe. Worse yet, her quiet, managed life has been shattered by a series of incompetent assistants. And she’s certain this Lily Smith creature isn’t going to be any less a burden than the last assistant they sent her. Or the one before that. Or before that... Lillian Linden-Smith needs this job. With a relentless TV lawyer and public mob still out for her blood for crimes committed by her “American royalty” parents, getting out of the country is her only hope for anonymity. If that means cleaning up and presenting an antisocial know-it-all Ph.D. for bookstores, clubs and lectures, fine. Dr. Hathaway may have succeeded in driving away all the others, but not this time. From their first meeting the sparks fly, and each is thinking: She has no idea who she’s dealing with. It’s hate at first sight in this love adventure from the author of Above Temptation, Roller Coaster and dozens of other best-selling, award-winning novels.

Seit ihrer Geburt lebt Pearl im Auto, sie vorne, ihre Ausreißer-Mutter auf der Rückbank. Vierzehn Jahre stehen die beiden jetzt schon am Rande eines Trailerparks irgendwo in Florida. Draußen vor der Windschutzscheibe ist die Welt den Waffen verfallen: Kinder wachsen mit Pistolen statt Haustieren auf, Schießübungen immer und überall, mal Alligatoren, mal den Fluss, mal Polizisten im Visier, und sonntags sitzt man beim Gottesdienst mit der geschulterten Schrotflinte in der ersten Reihe. Doch im Ford Mercury wirken andere Kräfte, hier lernt Pearl das Träumen. Bis mit Eli ein Mann auftaucht, der das Herz der Mutter stielt ... Gun Love liest sich wie ein Trip. Jennifer Clement schreibt vom Band zwischen Mutter und Tochter und dem Waffenwahnsinn ihrer Heimat, sie erzählt in strahlenden Bildern eine Geschichte, in der Liebe und Gewalt, Magie und Fakt, Sorge und Freude haltlos ineinander fallen. Das literarische Stimmungsbild einer ganzen Nation.
