You never know when it can happen, love might be right around the corner, down the block or across the aisle from you on your next flight. Stories of how people met are endlessly fascinating and also serve as reminders that we all need to be ready for anything, including meeting the love of your life when least expert it, or, are schlepping the garbage bins to the curb in your old flannel jammies.
Composer and beloved songwriter David Friedman has written many a love song but this is his first book on the world’s favorite subject. He embarked on collecting couple’s stories of “How they Met” stories a decade ago when recovering from a breakup as a kind of “heart healing” and therapeutic project. Plus, it can’t hurt to discover how people meet their true loves in real life, right?
What Friedman learned was utterly surprising- there was always an element of serendipity and planning had nothing to do with it. Along the way, what started out as a path to moving forward became a mission on matters of the heart.
David Friedman has gone all over North America in this study of true romance and talked to people from every walk of life – from devout church goers to same sex couples to celebrities. This inspiring read is wonderfully romantic and also offers much comfort that, even if you are looking for love in all the wrong places, love will find YOU. (When you least expect it!)
How They Met shares moving stories of how Lucie Arnaz met her famous mate, Lawrence Luckinbill and the unexpected story of Kathie Lee and Frank Gifford to name a few.
