Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, 2007 - Self-Help - 161 pages
There is no greater treasure on earth than a deeply shared experience of love.

In this wise and beautiful book, Stephanie Dowrick gently and confidently leads readers towards the attitudes and actions that will best support a genuinely loving intimate relationship - even with the extreme demands of contemporary life.

Practical and inspirational, this book is as much for people in longstanding relationships as it is for complete newcomers.

'It's not age, sexuality, wealth, religion or culture that will determine the success of your relationship. It is your willingness to discover what love truly means.'
