Publisher's Summary

Finding evidence in new psychological research, the myth of Psyche and Cupid, Shakespeare’s plays, Freud’s case histories, Anne Frank’s diaries, and contemporary novels, Carol Gilligan discovers that the roots of a more hopeful view of love are all around us.

"An original and elegant inquiry, a fine weave of vivid case studies of ‘couples in crisis’ and brilliant literary analysis." (Booklist)
"A rich and personal tapestry.... [A] bold and boundary-breaking book." (The Boston Globe)
