The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan

In this bittersweet, character-driven novel, Sullivan weaves in and out of five apparently unrelated lives. The narrative follows a woman grieving over her son’s adultery and upcoming divorce, a middle class husband drowning in debt, a French woman who regrets leaving her husband for a younger man, the career-minded Frances Gerety, creator of the timeless phrase “A Diamond is Forever,” and a resolutely unmarried couple assisting with their cousin’s wedding plans. Their triumphs and tragedies slowly reveal the thread that connects them all. ~Lizzie
