An American Marriage | A Review

Happy Tuesday Loves,

If you watched my February Reads then you will know that I have officially become a Tayari Jones fan. Her most recent book An American Marriage was a love story that I actually felt was so real it left me with feelings. I found the love triangle to be intriguing and left me trying to decide whose side I am on. I will say that this video HAS SPOILERS! So if you do not want to hear any I suggest you just take my recommendation and read the book for yourself. Also it is on Hoopla and if you are anything like me you will love the voice of Roy.



Roy and Celestial were newly weds (1.5 years in) when Roy was wrongfully accused of rape and sentenced to 12 years in prison. While Roy stayed in Lousiana to face his sentence, Celestial went back to their home in Atlanta and the story proceeds through the first 6 years of Roy’s sentence. Roy is an early release from prison after 5 years and things are not how they were.

Did that catch your attention?
