“In gathering together these dozen variations on the theme of love won and lost, I have turned to writers from the prairies who have demonstrated deft manoeuvering in this treacherous terrain. Their narratives make clear how many voices love speaks in and how tortured the whole business of men and women coming together and falling apart can be. As in actual life, no one in these accounts seems to know quite what to make of love, and yet everyone is enthralled by it.”—Wayne Tefs, from his preface.“An unapologetic and delightfully disarming collection of so-called ‘love’ stories.”—The Quill & Quire
