What are these books about?
“‘Divorce‘ centers on a commitment-shy woman, Maggie, who goes home to meet her fiance’s parents the weekend they announce they are separating after 35 years of marriage. It is told from Maggie’s point of view; and from the point of view of Gwyn, her future mother-in-law. They find themselves on the opposite ends of their relationships asking the same question: how do you know the people closest to you?”
“‘London‘” focuses on a young woman who returns to New York for the first time in three years for her brother’s wedding, only to find out that he believes he is in love with someone who is not his fiance. Brother and sister set out on an 11th hour road trip to find this other woman, in the hopes that it will help him make a decision about who he wants to spend his life with.
