"This wonderful book shows us how the Cinderella fantasy of a 'happy ever after' has long framed women's lives - even as they have resisted and subverted it... [Love Lives] reveals the devastating power of cultural scripts but also their malleability in the face of material context, individual agency and political change."

    - Claire Langhamer, author of The English in Love: The Intimate Story of an Emotional Revolution
