Notable: Three heartwarming memoirs for Valentine's Day

For Valentine's Day, three new memoirs about recovering from lost love and finding love anew.

The Bread of Angels: A Memoir of Love and Faith in Damascus (Knopf Doubleday) by Stephanie Saldana is the story of a young scholar who went to Syria to study the role of Jesus in Islam and found herself in love with a monk.

Hold Me Tight & Tango Me Home (Algonquin) by Maria Finn is a fascinating look at the history and culture of the Argentinian dance by a woman who followed its steps to healing after divorce.

Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, With Recipes (Little, Brown) by Elizabeth Bard is the charmingly enviable tale of a woman who visits the City of Light and falls in love with it, a handsome stranger and the fabulous food.
