Enjoy a sample: Chapter One
From the book jacket -
For thousands of years, marriages have been arranged by yentas, matchmakers, and overzealous parents looking to strike a bargain. In 1982, the author was ahead of the pop culture curve when she was matched to a stranger and then married along with 1250 other couples in a wedding ceremony at Madison Square Garden - “Where they hold the circus acts!?"
("Oh for Pete's Sake," I could hear my grandmother saying.)
Williams' writing flow and pace are fast and fluid when writing about people she loves in the book and becomes short, clipped, and dark when describing haunting incidents and abusive characters. And stay tuned to the ending, where she tidies the story up with the most creative and poetic finish.
