See the paperback cover of 'The Engagements' by J. Courtney Sullivan

Posted on

THE ENGAGEMENTS

Last summer, we said “yes” to J. Courtney Sullivan’s glittering third novel about a diamond engagement ring that passes through the generations. The Engagements opens on Frances Gerety, a real-life ad copywriter, who stumbled upon the phrase “Diamonds are forever” in the 1940s. But that phrase ā€” and what it really means ā€” echoes throughout the prismatic set of vignettes that follow.

If you missed The Engagements last year, you can finally put a ring on it (although this novel might make you re-think diamonds) in May when it appears in paperback, rocking the cover above.
