A well written anthology of love stories, depicts the way 10 couples met. When I think about it, one of the most catalytic moments in any relationship is the way in which the couple meet.

Interesting short stories

My only complaint was I've just learned the names of the story characters and it would end and another story began.

The Way We Met (ARC) by Patricia M. Jackson: **** quick, clean, heartwarming sweet stories from different eras/circumstances/cultures. I liked some more than others, but overall very good.
