The Long Love Currently no description for this product and will be added soon Childhood read this was my first inkling of the complexity of marriage. This book is one of the few that I can reread over again and take something new from it each time I first read it when I started dating my husband and it described the love and loyalty of relationships so beautifully that I reread it when I lose sight of what really matters and the profound beauty of long term love Buck is such a fantastic writer that she draws me in every time. I love these old books that have withstood the test of time This is all about relationships and how we come into them with plans and dreams and how we evolve through life, adapting as we go along, until what we end up with only vaguely resembles what we planned for and dreamt about, but in reality is much better. I only keep books in my collection that I have read and found valuable I have had this book for many years and even had the cover plasticized to preserve it It wasn t until I added it to goodreads, that I realized that this writer is actually the great Pearl Buck No wonder I thought it a great book.
