  • "From the bestselling author of Maine and Commencement comes a big, sprawling novel about marriage - about those who marry in a white heat of passion, those who marry for partnership and comfort, and those who live together, love each other, and have absolutely no intention of ruining it with a wedding. Weaving them all together, Sullivan gives us a sharply observed, witty, irresistible portrait of the thorny, joyful and complicated union that is marriage."

  • "Evelyn has been married to her husband for forty years, forty years since he slipped off her first wedding ring and put his own in its place. Delphine has seen both sides of love, the ecstatic, glorious highs of seduction, and the bitter, spiteful fury that descends when it's over. James, a paramedic who works the night shift, knows his wife's family thinks she could have done better; while Kate, partnered with Dan for a decade, has seen every kind of wedding, beach weddings, backyard weddings, castle weddings, and has vowed never, ever, to have one of her own. As these lives and marriages unfold in surprising ways, we meet Frances Gerety, a young advertising copywriter in 1947. Frances is working on the De Beers campaign and she needs a signature line, so, one night before bed, she scribbles a phrase on a scrap of paper: "A Diamond Is Forever." And that line changes everything."
  • "Wieso verlässt Teddy seine Frau und die beiden gemeinsamen Töchter - wegen einer Frau, die er an einer Hotelbar kennenlernt? James fragt sich, wieso Sheila ausgerechnet ihn, der doch nur ein Versager ist, geheiratet hat. Delphine verlässt ihren Mann und ihr Leben in Paris, um ihrem Geliebten nach New York zu folgen, und wird es bitterlich bereuen. Kate lehnt die Ehe ab, doch nun wollen ihre besten Freunde heiraten, und zwar so richtig prunkvoll: Jeff und Toby. J. Courtney Sullivan erzählt in diesem Roman meisterhaft die Geschichte von vier Paaren, die einander gefunden, geliebt, geheiratet, betrogen und verlassen haben. Geschickt verwebt sie die Fäden miteinander und zieht den Leser immer wieder in ihren Bann."
