The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan

The Engagements

*twinkle twinkle pretty diamond engagement rings*

Built around the central idea of diamond engagement rings and Frances Gerety, the advertising genius behind A Diamond is Forever tagline, this book takes readers into five different stories set into five different time periods. Each story is told through one perspective and feel honest in their assessment of key relationships, both romantic and familial. The time frames change at a fairly rapid pace, but never feel rushed or confusing, and the author does an excellent job of bringing everyone’s piece of the puzzle together to make one solid, final picture. Great characters, interesting historical references, and intricately created relationships make this clever book so entertaining to read. You’ll come for the glitz but stay for the real, human emotions.
