Love Story: A timeless classic

Love Story: A timeless classic

What can you say about a book that you know will make you cry, but you still can’t stay away from?

What can you say about a book that you read for the first time years ago, and then many times over?

What can you say about a book that shows how immense love can be, in less than 150 pages?

What can you say about a book that gave a whole new definition of love to generations?

What can you say about a book that has been translated into more than 20 languages, and has transcended time since it released 50 years ago?

What can you say about a book that you found on your mothers book shelf, and you hope your children will discover when they grow older?

 

I don’t think you need to say anything at all about LOVE STORY.

Reading it, once more, helped me forget the trials and tribulations that were on my mind, and left me feeling touched, both with its simplicity, and it’s weaving of a story of romance, loss and endurance.
