The definition of love may differ for everyone of us depending on the circumstances. Life is an emotional rollercoaster, and when everything looks to be going well owing to children, family, work pressure, and other problems, life can be turned upside down with the flick of a switch.
Sales of “romantic fiction and sagas” increased by 49% to approximately 6 million. Even though that’s only one-third of the number of “crime, thriller, and adventure” novels read this year, it adds up to a lot of fluttering hearts. And, given that, in literary terms, “romance and sagas” is another way of saying women’s fiction, and crime, thrillers, and adventure are three genres with universal appeal, rather than just finding readers from one half of the population, those figures appear even more astonishing. So, what’s going on?
However, when life presents us with events over which we have no control, it has an impact on our relationships. Let us not give up, but instead look for ways to improve things. As we embark on the week of love, let’s look at some timeless literature to assist you in developing healthy relationships and more.
