Day 20 - Romance!

I have two all-time favorite romance books so if somebody asks me: 
"What is your favorite romance book?"

I immediately think of Atonement and Brokeback Mountain. The sad love stories of Cecilia and Robbie Turner, Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist. Yes, I like romance books that are sad mainly because all that sadness lends verisimilitude to these stories. 

Two books for Day 20, not because I cannot pick between them - I personally would choose Brokeback Mountain, I just loved their story - but because Brokeback Mountain is quite a controversial book and not everyone can or will appreciate it. So for those of you who don't like gay people for some reason, I recommend Atonement.
