If You Liked: Marriages Interrupted

by KJ in #AmReading

Stay With Me is the unexpected story of a marriage invaded–by family, by expectations, by culture–and a second wife, intended to provide the offspring wife number one has failed to produce. But no one has the full story (do they ever?), and even the people who claim to be playing by the rules aren’t. This book surprised me in many ways–the plot kept me guessing, and the characters were uniquely themselves. Like Outlawed, it’s a consideration of what it means when fertility comes first in a society, and like His Only Wife, it’s an inside look at marriage expectations beyond the Western bubble. If you haven’t checked this one out, do.
