Classic Love Stories 2

by Thomas Hardy
Louisa May Alcott

Audiobook

On the theme of love a second great collection of romantic short stories from yesteryear read by another husband and wife team Edward Fox and Joanna David. LOVE is a staple theme of many short stories and in this second off-beat selection from CSA it comes in many guises. There is love tragically thwarted by duty in Thomas Hardy's The Son's Veto; the thankless love of a jilted Burmese wife in Georgie Porgie by Kipling; blind love set in Victorian theatre-land in The Patch on The Quilt by Sapper; love with a happy ending in the comic yarn about a cockney couple's unlikely reunion in For Better or Worse by W.W. Jacobs; and in John Galsworthy's Spindleberries a love of something far more mystical than that of mere humankind. Five classic examples of romantic fiction written by five great story-tellers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and excellently interpreted by husband and wife team, Joanna David and Edward Fox.
