From Shakespeare to the Twilight saga, unconventional and dramatic love stories are among our favorites. Last week, we asked Red Roomers to share some the best love stories on their blogs.
A few posts stood out:
- For a sweetly romantic short tale, we like member Annette Talbert's "Colour My World," story of loneliness, nostalgia, and 1970s pop music.
- Member Valorie Wells evokes eccentric characters and a nomadic life in the story of her grandparents who met when "She Ran Away with the Circus."
- "My parents agree to let me work as a waitress for the summer in a Jewish sleep away camp in the Berkshires." So starts "My Shaygetz," member Phyllis Schieber's story of forbidden love and broken teenage hearts
These bloggers will win a copy of Jacquelyn Mitchard’s newest novel Second Nature: A Love Story. New York Times bestselling author Mitchard’s novels, with their riveting stories and unforgettable characters, have won the hearts of millions of readers. Now, from the author of The Deep End of the Ocean and No Time to Wave Goodbye, comes the fierce and moving tale of one woman’s fight for her identity and her life when fate holds out a second chance. Jackie brings a twist to the love story taken from today’s headlines: Her hero balances her identity, her family, and her lifelong love in deciding whether to undergo a brand-new medical procedure.
All of Red Roomers' favorite love stories are listed here. While the three we're featuring are personal love stories from members' lives, many of the others are appreciations of love in literature, film, and television, and they're all worth your while. I hope you'll find your favortes and let the blogger know what you liked about their story.
