“Fifteen Brushes with Love” is a collection of short stories to delight, and gently remind you of the day you first fell in love. What is love and what does it mean? Love is life itself. Yes, but what does it really mean, because there are so many different kinds of love? We all start (so they say) from the love between Adam and Eve and their forbidden love. People meet, fall in love, get married and have children in the belief that love lasts forever. But does it?
These stories explore the way people fall in love thinking that they will live happily ever after, and that there will be no outside influences to mar their lives together. But is life always as idyllic as this, and what happens when Fate intervenes?
These snippets are just a few insights into the variety of the stories in this book of love, lost love, remembered love and temptation.
