New Book Featuring Two Canadians Shares Joys and Disappointments in Relationships

Fits, Starts & Matters of the Heart:

28 True Stories of Love, Loss & Everything in Between

Montreal, QC (November 3, 2010) å-- Can you imagine getting the “birds and bees” talk–complete with stick figure drawings–at age seven? What if you discovered your husband was cheating on you…when you were four months pregnant? How does it feel to learn your adopted daughter wants to find her birth mom?

Just in time for the holidays, Fits, Starts & Matters of the Heart: 28 True Stories of Love, Loss & Everything in Between answers these questions and more as writers take us on a personal journey into the relationships that shape our lives. With wit and humour, honesty and grace, these intriguing essayists – including two Montrealers – dish on everything from families and lovers to influential life changers and pets.

From Fits, Starts & Matters of the Heart:

· “Mindy didn’t want to hurt my feelings. But even though I understood her need to find roots, I worried about sharing my daughter with a stranger.” pg 21

· “When we were still a couple, my ex and I had an understanding: You mess up, I’ll forgive. You can remain weak; I’ll stay stronger. You take as long as you want to figure out it’s me you want, because I’ve already got it sussed out. I now understand that the weak spot in our relationship was exemplified not by the terrible day when he said, ‘I’m not sure I can marry you,’ but by the day he actually proposed.” pg 55

· “I realize now that if you’re planning to hide a secret stash of prophylactics, it’s probably best to use luggage that doesn’t belong to your parents. It’s also probably best if you remember to unpack the bag in a timely manner.” pg 77

· “Many of the women I know spend their money on piles of expensive shoes, spa vacations or designer bags. Me? My hard-earned bucks get invested in the longest relationship I’ve ever had: the musical union between Bruce Springsteen and me.” pg 103

Fit, Starts & Matters of the Heart is a perfect holiday gift, offering readers an opportunity to reflect on their own relationships as a new year begins.

If you have ever fallen in love, been betrayed, lost a loved one or let a child fly from the nest, this compelling collection will resonate with your heart. From the hairdresser father who knew his daughter’s locks better than he knew her heart, to the young fiancée who gave up everything for love (and lost), to the spurned wife who found redemption in an unwanted pregnancy – these 28 essays chronicle our sometimes awkward, often painful and bittersweet attempts to make sense of relationships.
