True love – the one magical great love, which you live and would die for, which signifies and instills a final sense in everything. This love is the greatest power in the universe even when faced with the most adverse conditions. It is the one love every human being dreams of, and which has been at the heart of some of the biggest and most beautiful movies and books. They exist – they really do – the true great love stories in this world. Kathrin Werner traveled to many countries and wrote down twenty of the most beautiful love stories she encountered abroad and at home. She recounts them in a moving and magical way.
