Here are 9 tales about the leavers and the left, the deceivers and the deceived, those searching and those sought after during the human heart's often painful and always conflicted hunt for love. These stories have been selected from among the many Richard Duggin has published in literary venues over the years, and they share in subject and theme our common struggle to communicate one to another what our deepest emotions have no language to express.
