For what ails a broken heart, there is only time.

Healing Hearts, however, is a potent salve. A collection of contemporary and classic stories, essays, and poems, Healing Hearts offers comfort and counsel for enduring the lonely experience of breaking up. From Diane Ackerman to Thomas Moore, from Lord Byron to Raymond Carver, from Gabriel Garcia Marquez to John Gray, this eclectic mix of passionate writers ponders the universal but often unspoken feelings that come with separating from the person you love.

With insight and unexpected humor, this unusual collection validates the confusion and sting, the sadness and regret we all feel at breaking up. Literary and curative, it is a companion for moving on from unsuccessful relationships with wisdom and understanding.
