Summary

"I’ll just go on loving you in my deepest heart as I have done this very long time already." —Loretta Young

Love is the most celebrated of human experiences — yet it can also be the most devastating. This is a collection of passionate, deeply personal letters revealing the painful underside of love. Through the voices of well-known figures we catch a glimpse of what happens when love goes wrong.

Witness Winston Churchill ‘growl with anger to be treated with benevolent indifference’, and Edith Piaf reel in the throes of a ‘terrible’ passion. Through the beautifully-expressed letters of such literary icons as Charlotte Brontë, Oscar Wilde and Virginia Woolf, Hollywood stars Loretta Young, Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe, Yours Always offers an unusually intimate insight into the lives of great men and women.

Love is revealed here in its many shades of disharmony and confusion: unrequited, uncertain, imbalanced, unconventional, thwarted, failed and forbidden. Love is not always rose-tinted, and Yours Always illuminates the sorrows that can accompany falling in, falling out, and staying in love.
