Yours Always : Letters of Longing, Hardback

Yours Always : Letters of Longing Hardback

Edited by Eleanor Bass


'I'll just go on loving you in my deepest heart as I have done this very long time already.' Loretta Young This is a collection of passionate, deeply personal letters from well-known figures revealing the painful underside of love.

Witness Winston Churchill 'growl with anger to be treated with benevolent indifference', and Edith Piaf reel in the throes of a 'terrible' passion.

Through the beautifully-expressed letters of such literary icons as Charlotte Bronte, Oscar Wilde and Virginia Woolf, Hollywood stars Loretta Young, Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe Yours Always offers an unusually intimate insight into the lives of great men and women.

Love is revealed here in its many shades of disharmony and confusion: unrequited, uncertain, imbalanced, unconventional, thwarted, failed and forbidden.

Love is not always rose-tinted, and Yours Always illuminates the sorrows that can accompany falling in, falling out, and staying in love.
