An American Marriage

51DVSda0kWL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_When Oprah chooses a book, it’s usually worth picking up. And, An American Marriage absolutely falls into this category. Celestial and Roy meet in college and get married after remeeting afterward. As they get used to the routines of being married, Roy is arrested and imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. At first, in their letters, you know they will make it through, and then, things don’t work out as you might expect. When Roy’s conviction is overturned and he tries to return to his pre-jail life, everything’s confused. I really enjoyed this story and had a hard time putting it down. It’s fascinating and heartbreaking. I would definitely pick it up.
