Abstract:

"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"--Publisher's web page.
