Robbins, Emily


A Word for Love

Set in an unnamed foreign country, A WORD FOR LOVE is Emily Robbins' debut novel about a young American woman who arrives in search of an “astonishing text”—said to have the power to make all its readers weep—but finds herself caught instead in the lives of her host family and a Romeo & Juliet-like romance that ultimately teaches her about love, loyalty, and herself—and changes her reading of everything.
