Just for fun I did some searching for a list of best literary love stories. You know, like Jane and Mr. Rochester, Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth, even Henry and Claire (The Time Traveler's Wife). But I came up with nothing. You'd think that today of all days I'd be likely to find such a list somewhere. Or maybe I just didn't look hard enough. So I ask you, dear reader, what is your favorite literary love story? Do Scarlett and Rhett make you weak in the knees? Or does the tragedy of Catherine and Heathcliff bring you to tears just thinking about it? My vote goes for Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth even though I sometimes wonder if they could truly be happy together.
