From the Dust Cover insides:
We are all pilgrims searching for love. So why, when love is offered, do we time and time again find ourselves lost and alone?
In "Hearts that we broke long ago", Merle shain speaks to us about loving, about how our past works its influence on our present, and about how we, unknowlingly, become the killers of our own best dreams. Like her previous bestsellers - "some Men Are More Perfect Than Others" and "When Lovers Are Friends" - this book has the ability to touch upon our most intimate feelings and bring them into focus with sudden clarity.
Merle Shain's books have been likened to conversations with a compassionate and wise firend. they are at once simple yet thoughtful - like good poetry they put words to feeligns for which there were no words before.
