All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps

All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps

All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps reveals the many and remarkable paths that relationships can take.

From the excitement and anticipation of courtship to the deep connection of lifelong commitment, we discover that love is found in the most unexpected of places—a New York toll booth, a military base in Iraq, an airport lounge. These stories are a testament to love’s remarkable endurance.

As the StoryCorps subjects in this book start careers, build homes, and raise families, we witness the life-affirming joy of partnership, the comfort of shared sorrows, and profound gratitude in the face of loss.

In All There Is, we encounter love that survives discrimination, illness, poverty, distance—even death. In the courage of people’s passion we are reminded of the strength and resilience of the human spirit. This powerful collection bears witness to real love, in its many varied forms, enriching our understanding of that most magical feeling.

A New York Times-bestseller first published in 2012, All There Is features stories heard on our weekly broadcast on NPR’s Morning Edition, plus more. A gift that is perfect for newlyweds and seasoned lovers alike.
