Evelyn has been married to her husband for forty years. James knows his wife's family thinks she could have done better. Kate, partnered with Dan for a decade, has seen every kind of wedding--and vowed never to have one of her own. As these lives and marriages unfold in surprising ways, we meet Frances Gerety, an advertising copywriter working on the De Beers campaign in 1947. One night before bed she scribbles a phrase on a scrap of paper: "A Diamond Is Forever." And that line changes everything. A rich, layered, exhilarating novel from the bestselling author of Maine (2011).
