If you're an astute reader who loves elegant covers and writing that feels familiar, warm and transfixing; Francesca Segal is someone you should read. She has the lineage of excellent writing; her late father is Erich Segal (Love Story). This is a story that slowly simmers with elegance, wisdom and complexity. The main character is male and Jewish. It centers on one main event; an upcoming wedding but as most of realize life complicates every event in our lives because the human spirit is unpredictable. This is the kind of book you'll want to take somewhere where you will have no interruptions and can leisurely enjoy. It's always an added bonus as a writer and reader when I stumble upon an author who isn't afraid to insert words not commonly used in fiction; uxorious. I loved this book!
