"Lenny and Vandy SIngleton's epistolary "Love Conquers All," speaks to the common threads that link humanity throughout every epoch: love, loss, spirituality, abandonment, addiction, disease, imprisonment, injustice, friendship, marriage, divorce, loneliness and struggle. Their lives reflect and speak to the human condition and leaves one pondering their own place on this stage called life, while ever clinging to the hope that Love will one day conquer all."
Disclaimer: I know Vandy, and she gave me a copy of this book and asked for a review. That being said, while my reading was affected by my friendship with Vandy and knowledge of some of her background, my review is entirely honest.
Love Conquers All is not the type of book I typically read, but I became engrossed quickly. Vandy and Lenny are both so likeable, honest, and transparent, reading their story feels like a personal invitation into their lives.
High school friends who reconnect after many years and tribulations, Vandy and Lenny suddenly and completely fall in love and bare their souls, covering major themes that touch us all: love, family, life’s trials. In the process, they dig into even richer themes of justice, addiction, racism, religion, and spirituality. And these themes are not handled in grand, high-level discourse. They are addressed in the context of their own bittersweet reality.
On the surface, Vandy and Lenny’s book of love letters is about two lovers separated by circumstances, but I could not help but find myself sucked into their relationship, an emotional ménage á trois, and reflect on my own life’s trials, different as they may be from theirs. And since I promised honesty, I found it most difficult to read some of Vandy’s letters because of the graphic description of her cancer treatment (because of my friendship with her) but utterly fascinated with Lenny’s experiences.
Regardless of your personal experiences and perspectives, I recommend this book. You will find common ground with both Vandy and Lenny, as I have, and their experiences and perspectives will stretch and even challenge yours as they touch on death, loss, marriage, divorce, gender, and greatest of all, hope.
