Summary
We all know the headiness and excitement of the early days of love. But what comes after? In Edinburgh, a couple, Rabih and Kirsten, fall in love. They get married, they have children but no long-term relationship is as simple as happily ever after. "The Course of Love" is a novel that explores what happens after the birth of love, what it takes to maintain love, and what happens to our original ideals under the pressures of an average existence
Summary
Traces the way original ideals about romance change in the face of real-world challenges, exploring the relationship of Rabih and Kirsten, who endure life-affirming philosophical and psychological compromises after marrying and having children
