Love Stories: Uplifting True Stories about Love from the Internationally Bestselling Author of Boy Swallows Universe Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Trent Dalton, Australia's best-loved writer, goes out into the world and asks a simple, direct question: Can you please tell me a love story?
A blind man yearns to see the face of his wife of 30 years. A divorced mother has a secret love affair with a priest. A geologist discovers a three-minute video recorded by his wife before she died. A tree lopper's heart falls in a forest. A working mum contemplates taking photographs of her late husband down from her fridge. A girl writes a last letter to the man she loves most, then sets it on fire. A palliative care nurse helps a dying woman converse with the angel at the end of her bed. A renowned 100-year-old scientist ponders the one great earthly puzzle he was never able to solve: What is love?
Endless stories. Human stories. Love stories.
Inspired by a personal moment of profound love and generosity, Trent Dalton, best-selling author and one of Australia's finest journalists, spent two months in 2021 speaking to people from all walks of life, asking them one simple and direct question: Can you please tell me a love story? The result is an immensely warm, poignant, funny, and moving book about love in all its guises, including observations, reflections and stories of people falling into love, falling out of love, and never letting go of the loved ones in their hearts. A heartfelt, deep, wise, and tingly tribute to the greatest thing we will never understand and the only thing we will ever really need: love.
"It's the kind of book that has some impact on the reader...a Chaucerian endeavour, a rich caravanserai of real, living people with something important to tell." (Sydney Morning Herald)

It’s a great book and some stories also got me emotional. I have bookmarked heaps of lines that I would use for my partner to tell him how much I love him.
Only negative for me was that because the stories were so short, i forgot a lot of them as I progressed through. Didn’t give the stories much of a thinking time, but maybe that’s more on me.
