definitely worth a read.
Someone was going to pay for what happened to Roy, just as Roy paid for what happened to that woman. Someone always pays. Bullet don't have nobody's name on it. I think the same is true for vengeance. Maybe even for love. It's out there, random and deadly, like a tornado.
What are a woman’s obligations to her wrongly convicted husband? Ethically, should a woman “uphold her vows” while her husband serves a 12 year prison sentence? Tayari Jones’ most recent novel recounts the experience of an African American couple living in Atlanta. Celestial and Roy meet during their years at an HBCU and get married after graduation. One year into the marriage, Roy is wrongly convicted of rape and sentenced to 12 years in prison. Ultimately, the relationship deteriorates after years of painful separation. Roy loses everything while he is in jail: job, house, and marriage. He is a victim of the state…But is his wife ethically obligated to stick with him? American Marriage is definitely worth a read! Liked this a lot.
