"Love is the eternally appealing theme of this rich and varied collection of poems, letters, songs, stories, folklore and customs, all assembled and enchantingly illustrated by distinguished artist Tasha Tudor. In addition to romantic love, this book celebrates love of friends, of family and even of pets , empathizes with secret or unspoken love, and offers solace to those whose love is unrequited." "In Boston, Tasha often visited her maternal grandmother Louisa (who resided in “The Tudor” apartment/hotel/office complex on Beacon Street) and elegantly dined with other family members there. The nine-story building was built on land once owned by “Ice King” Frederic Tudor, Tasha’s great-grandfather. At an early age, Tasha learned about his business endeavors, particularly his success in shipping ice to warmer climes. She was enthralled by objects that had been shipped back to Boston—usually as ballast inside the Ice King’s ships--from faraway places including India. Tasha was delighted by the Chinese Export porcelain (primarily Canton) and German kugel Christmas ornaments once owned by her great-grandmother Euphemia Fenno Tudor, Frederic’s wife. Many of those items had descended through the family and eventually came to Tasha herself."
