An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Summary: Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.

My Personal Review: I really enjoyed this book! It felt a little Jerry Springer at times but it felt very realistic. If you want to read this book just for the relationship drama, it's a quick entertaining read. However, this book also has layers of meaning that you can take the time to dissect and really see some deeper meanings. I feel I would need to read it more than once to pick up some of the concepts. I would recommend this book to anyone.
