The Engagements

51hDBZkPbKLI very much enjoyed The Engagements by J Courtney Sullivan. In a nutshell, this book spans the 20th century and beginning of the 21st. It starts with the story of the advertising copywriter behind the De Beers slogan “Diamonds Are Forever.” It then weaves the stories of several couples and their histories, failures, and triumphs and connects them with diamonds. The storytelling was creative and the storylines compelling. The stories intertwined a little at the end, but I would have loved a little more. Nevertheless, by the time I got to the end, I really didn’t mind because the book was so enjoyable. I highly recommend this one as another good summer read.
