Product Description
 
Award-winning journalist and documentary maker Stefania Rousselle had stopped believing in love. She had spent years reporting on terrorist attacks, sexual slavery, and the rise of the far right. Her relationship had fallen apart. Her faith in humanity was shaken. She decided to set out alone on a road trip across France, sleeping in strangers' homes, asking ordinary men and women the one question everyone wants to know the answer to- What is love?

From a baker in Normandy to a shepherd in the Pyrenees, from a gay couple estranged from their families to a widow who found love again at 70, Amour is a treasure trove of moving and uplifting stories about love, accompanied by stunning photographs.Award-winning journalist and documentary maker Stefania Rousselle had stopped believing in love.
