Ten perfect books for Valentine's Day gifts

Last year at the Christian Science Monitor, Marjorie Kehe came up with a list of ten perfect books for Valentine's Day gifts.

One title on the list:
Foreign Affairs, by Alison Lurie

This deft Pulitzer Prize-winner tells the stories of a handful of characters – Americans and British – in search of love and life in London. At first glance Virginia Miner – a 50-something American academic drawn into an affair with a tourist from Oklahoma – may not seem a promising heroine for a romance. But this modest novel has magic to work and the tale that Lurie spins is comic, touching, and true.
Read about the other books on the list.
