. a fire goddess wanting revenge . two men prepared to die for each other . marriage to a Maasai . the story of the willow pattern plate . the greatest legend in Australia's horse racing history . the language of flowers . love on the internet...and much, much more! Love across time and space Have you ever thought of love as being like the measles? - or like a bicycle repair kit? Maybe you think of it as being more like a volcano. The stories in this book look at love from all angles. They move from Hawaii to China, Australia, Kenya, Cambodia and into cyberspace; from a family of refugees to a Sultan in his palace; from stories of legendary passion to a heart-stretching piece about the waiting, watching wife of a man lost in the frozen Arctic. Anecdotes, limericks, quotations add a light touch and may tell you things you never knew before (why are tiger testicles and walrus tusks so highly valued?). A fascinating look at a timeless theme.
