Synopsis

The Truth About Love by Philip Ardagh

Have you ever wondered: Why the heart is the symbol of love? Who St Valentine really was? Why Cupid wears a blindfold? Why a bride throws her bouquet? Why diamonds are a girl's best friend? Why we give red roses? Why we wear wedding rings on the fourth finger of our left hand? How numerology can predict who your perfect partner will be? The answer to these and many other love-related questions are packed within the covers of this gorgeous book.
