Communion: The female search for love by Bell Hooks

This is the third book in Bell Hook's "Love Trilogy". I had never read Hook's works before and wasn't sure what to expect from the title. I found this book fascinating and didn't want to put it down! Hook's writes about how both males and females are affected by living in a patriarchal culture; changes that have occurred within the past few decades, including some unexpectedly brought about by the feminist movement; and the advantages to being a women over 40, for finding real self-development and the essence of love. I want to buy a copy for my personal library.
