"Conversations on Love" by Natasha Lunn (Hardcover)
From Rachida: I have been following Natasha since her Conversations on Love newsletter that was the beginning of this book. Natasha is a master interviewer which is why this book is so interesting. She asked all the questions I had built up in my head over many years of relationships and I was left with some golden nuggets of wisdom.
One of the many bonuses of this book is that it also tackles platonic love - the dynamic between friends, especially friends that are at different stages in their lives, and how to manage feelings of envy or jealousy.
Reading this book felt liberating and made me realise that so many things I thought I knew about love were simply myths. This book made me look back on my relationships with a new level of understanding and compassion towards others and also myself.
