Our society talks an awful lot about romance. You know: true love, unconditional love, unrequited love, and seemingly every other form of the stuff.

Minnesota author Ellen Baker puts the emotion on paper (or magic Kindle pages) in her new book "I Gave My Heart to Know This."

During World War II, Wisconsin-ites Grace and daughter/mother Lena and Violet must carry on (with work, life, etc.) at home without the men they love.

The story really unfolds when Violet's great-granddaughter returns some 50 years later and uncovers the many secrets buried in her family's history.

Trust us, it's just the kind of book you could fall madly in love with.

Meet author Ellen Baker tonight: 7:30 p.m., Common Good Books, 165 Western Av N, St. Paul, 651-225-8989.
