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.

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.

The Sufi mystic and poet Jalaluddin Rumi is most beloved for his poems expressing the ecstasies and mysteries of love in all its forms—erotic, platonic, divine—and Coleman Barks presents the best of them in this delightful and inspiring collection. Rendered with freshness, intensity, and beauty as Barks alone can do, these startling and rich poems range from the "wholeness" one experiences with a true lover, to the grief of a lover's loss, and all the states in between: from the madness of sudden love to the shifting of a romance to deep friendship to the immersion in divine love. Rumi, the ultimate poet of love, explores all "the magnificent regions of the heart," and he opens you to the lover within. Coleman Barks has made this medieval, Persian-born (present-day Afghanistan) poetic and spiritual genius the most popular poet in America today. This seductive volume reveals Rumi's charms and depths more than any other.
