“We all know the headiness and excitement of the early days of love. But what comes after? In Edinburgh, a couple, Rabih and Kirsten, fall in love. They get married, they have children–but no long-term relationship is as simple as “happily ever after.” The Course of Love explores what happens after the birth of love, what it takes to maintain, and what happens to our original ideals under the pressures of an average existence. We see, along with Rabih and Kirsten, the first flush of infatuation, the effortlessness of falling into romantic love, and the course of life thereafter. Interwoven with their story and its challenges is an overlay of philosophy–an annotation and a guide to what we are reading.”

    It’s both uncanny and comforting to read about your personal experiences in a book that isn’t about you! A blend of fiction and non-fiction, this is one of the most accurate and insightful books I’ve read. Alain brings to light the human experience within marriage/life partnerships. I stand reminded and motivated to rise in love. Were I Czar, this would be required reading for all. (This would be the PERFECT engagement gift!)
