A selection of prose and poetry to celebrate marriage, love and relationships - tender, funny, cynical, some well known, some unexpected.
Following the wonderfully moving In Loving Memory, this anthology offers a delightful and provocative collection of readings and poems, comic and profound. The perfect partner for weddings and valentines, wedding anniversaries and vow renewals, for ceremonies civil or religious, above all it should be enjoyed by anyone who wants to try to understand the great mysteries of love. BE MINE charts and celebrates all stages of romance from first loves to lasting loves, from proposals to weddings to wrong turnings. With readings suitable for all ages, containing pieces well-known and well-loved, and forgotten and unknown, this collection is a journey through the epic and domestic, the patience and passions of love.
Be Mine is an anthology that is truly comprehensive . . . It is one to keep by your bed and return to again and again - London Paper

Sally Emerson writes like a dangerous angel - Douglas Adams
The most comprehensive of these anthologies perceptively looks two ways at once. As well as offering a wide-ranging selection of readings, Sally Emerson's In Loving Memory offers a whole section of hymns, prayers and readings - presumably in recognition - Bel Mooney, The Times
