Amor Eterno : Eleven Lessons in Love (00 Edition)by Patricia Preciado Martin
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
It brings a mother to her knees to plead for her son's safe return from war. It draws a grown woman back to the site of cherished childhood memories. It keeps the passion and romance of youth alive in an older woman's heart. It brings together heiresses and busboys, lawyers and chambermaids. Only love, the magical elixir that transcends boundaries and relieves heartaches, can do these things. Through earthy, charming stories that blend songs, letters, and prayers, Patricia Preciado Martin explores the hidden places of the soul and the human longing for Amor Eterno, eternal love. Forbidden love, enchanted love, and desperate love are just some of the varieties of love that get mixed into this sweet concoction of romance, wit, and instruction. A delicious combination of modern sensibility and folk wisdom--including recipes for fresh breath and special prayers to Saint Valentine--this book tells universal tales of devotion and desire. Seeking love in many forms, Martin's characters relive unforgettable experiences, pursue elusive destinies, give themselves with abandon, and yearn for home. Love is the mysterious and miraculous emotion that leads them to deny or indulge their deepest needs. Amor Eterno is a passionate and humorous collection of stories that will inspire us to treasure and share the loves we have known.
Through earthy, charming stories that blend songs, letters, and prayers, Patricia Preciado Martin explores the hidden places of the soul and the human longing for amor eterno, eternal love.
