Lost & Found Lovers book coverEver wonder what happens to lovers who reunite after years apart? Ever wonder what might happen if you rediscovered your Lost Love? The 1,001 people from all over the world who participated in Dr. Kalish’s renowned Lost Love Project did exactly that — and they prove the timeless power of rekindled romance.

From Rick and Ilsa in Casablanca to Luke and Laura on General Hospital; from Tristan and Iseult to Prince Charles and Lady Camilla Parker Bowles, Lost and Found Love has captured our imaginations throughout history. With all this interest within popular culture, one would think that renewed love would have long been a fertile area of research for social scientists. Surprisingly, there had been nothing published at all!

Lost and Found Lovers: Facts and Fantasies of Rekindled Romances, by Nancy Kalish, Ph.D. has been undertaken to fill this gap. Here for the first time are the full, fascinating results of Dr. Kalish’s Lost Love Project which has garnered international media attention.

Reader Comments

I think everyone who finds themselves in the situation of “loving someone from the past” should read your book. Until I read it I thought I was alone in my broken hearted existence, loving my ex-wife ten years later. It made me realize that dreams do come true and “real love” is just that…. “real”. Nancy, thank you I love you. I took a pink highlighter and highlighted the parts that read just like I had written them. When I got through half the book was pink. I realized, I am not alone. Thank God, I’m not crazy. Just in love.


Last night I read part of your book and was astounded to read that so many of the stories sounded just like mine. I never knew that something like this could happen. I intend to finish reading it whenever I am alone and have a chance. In my current mental state, your book feels like the Bible!!!!!!!


I felt that my story was being told in any number of ways throughout the Lost Love Chronicles. I still have a warm feeling of gratitude and recognition generated by the many insights contained in the book. Having had the experience of a classic first love, I deeply appreciate your having elucidated its elements and poignant emotions, from the unique beginnings through the prolonged and persistent endurance of a wonderful part of my life. I have shared the insights with any number of friends and acquaintances over the years, to their pleasure and mine.

I shall be grateful for your efforts for the remainder of my life.


A bit less that 2 years ago I bought your book. We corresponded a couple times concerning a lost love that I tried to contact (unsuccessfully). However…. the process that was set in motion has resulted in my reestablishing many many friendships that I had thought were gone forever… most importantly with my college roommate who I haven’t seen in over 25 years…. in fact I am taking a trip to see him in a couple weeks! Soooo… even though I didn’t find my lost love (although I haven’t given up hope on that one yet!!) I have a treasure of friends that have returned to my life and I to them. And more are coming back every day!! What a blessing!


Thank you very much for the inspiration you gave me which has in turn enriched my life so much. There was a point in time a few years ago I felt so alone and so old…. now I feel like a teenager again!! I’m sure I’m not the only one you’ve touched in this way!! I hope your efforts have been rewarding to you for they have been to me!! Thanks again!!


I bought your book in the spring of 1998 and read it straight through the day I bought it. I am 29 years old and am a full time student. I just HAD TO contact you, because I totally believe in your project, I can relate to it! Thank you Nancy, for believing in such a wonderful thing. I wish you luck, and many, many years of happiness.


Hi Dr. Kalish! I was thinking of you the other day as I was going over my e-mail — most of which has been from friends that I haven’t seen in many years! Most of this is due to your book! Or at least your book was a catalyst to my taking action that I wished to take anyways.
