The most complex of emotions is explored in stunning photographs that will melt hearts. The many sides of love are shown through captured moments—pets and pals and parents; giggles, tears, and surprise; a leap across a field; a hug when one needs it. Simple poetic captions give readers starting places to think and talk about the people and the things they love—and examine its many meanings. Poignant and joyful, tender and true, Shelley Rotner and Deborah Carlin present this most intimate of emotions in all its wondrous ways.
