More about the book:

Editor Marita Golden recounts the morning she woke up certain that she would meet her soul mate in "My Own Happy Ending."

Memoirist Reginald Dwayne Betts, in a piece he calls "Learning the Name Dad," writes stirringly about serving time in prison and how that transformed his life for the better.

New York Times bestselling author Pearl Cleage is at her best in the delicate, touching "Missing You."

DC-area resident Robin Marcus explains how "Becoming A Grandmother Becomes Me – Finally"
Award-winning author David Anthony Durham enraptures readers with his "An Act of Faith."

New York Times bestselling author L. A. Banks is both funny and wise in her beautiful essay on discovering love as a child, "Two Cents and a Question."

The poetry of love is here, too-from Gwendolyn Brooks's classic "Black Wedding Song" to works by Nikki Giovanni, E. Ethelbert Miller, A. Van Jordan, and Kwame Alexander.

It's All Love is a dazzling, delightfully diverse exploration of the wonderful gift of love.
