In 2012 the hottest book of the year (in more ways than one) was an erotic novel called Fifty Shades of Grey.
This book is not about that one.
It is about many things Fifty Shades of Grey has women and girls thinking about. What is love? And who are we, as women, and what sort of love are we worthy of?
The essays, quotes, and poetry in this little book were written by women who share a central vision of who we are, of what it means to be female and what it means to be loved, that is rooted in faith in God. It is rooted in the belief that we were personally fashioned as image bearers of the divine being who is Love itself.
Fifty Shades of Loved includes poetry and essays from Rachel Starr Thomson, Mercy Hope, Shea Wood, Susan Milligan, Kit Tosello, Katie Rees, and Laura Leigh-Anne Busick.
