Sullivan, J. Courtney. The Engagements
Switching back and forth in time, beginning in the 1940s to almost present day, this novel follows the lives of many different couples and families. One character is France Gerety, the real copywriter who, while working for N.W. Ayer & Son advertising agency, coined the famous advertising line "A Diamond is Forever.” Not surprisingly, this novel is about diamonds, engagements, love, and advertising. The characters are unique, and you will be drawn into each one’s story. The Engagements is a very pleasurable read with a great ending.
