The History of Love by Nicole Krauss

This is a novel with two important characters, Leo Gursky and Alma Singer.

Leo is an old man who once fell in love at the age of ten--60 years ago--with a girl named Alma. And, he wrote a book in honour of his love.

Alma is a young girl hoping to find a cure for her mother's loneliness. She then stumbles accross a book, The History of love and finds out that she is named after the heroine of the story. She looks for the writer.

Then, these stories are beautifully connected by the writer. Krauss helps the readers of her novel to feel heartbreaking or joyful truths about life and love through these special characters.

I am really very curious to know about the history of love. Hope that this book will solve the mystery.
I have lot of books but haven't found any on love's history.
