    Oprah’s Book Club 2018 Selection

    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 12 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. 

    This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward - with hope and pain - into the future.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Narrators Eisa Davis and Sean Crisden skillfully portray Celestial and Roy.... In Part One, the narrators read the couple's letters so intimately that the listener may feel like an intruder.... As every wedding vow is tested, the narrators breathe intensity into Jones's riveting prose." (AudioFile)

    A fantastic read

    I could not stop listening . I surfed through waves of emotions, shock , sadness, outrage, betrayal, even a taste for revenge to finally rest with mercy and understanding. I recommend this read, I travelled with every single characters some more than others. So will anyone who reads the book. I recommend it.

    Truthful, touching and meaningful

    This book made me understand how real men behave in difficult situations, how much honour to certain people means, what real love can be and how to make peace with something you have lost. All male characters are very special, each of them in their own way. The female character is somebody I couldn’t relate to, but nevertheless admire for the way she was loved by all around her. I especially liked the speakers. Because of them I felt like a part of the story, ready to answer the characters’ letters myself. Many thanks for the very enjoyable listening time.

    Geschichte aus dem Milieu der Amerikaner mit afrikanischen Wurzeln

    Die Geschichte ist ganz nett, hat aber viele Längen. Ich kann mich sicher als Deutsche nicht richtig in die Lage eines Amerikaners hineinfühlen, der afrikanische Wurzeln hat und aufgrund seiner Hautfarbe überall Sorge vor Diskriminierung haben muss. Das ist wirklich erschreckend! Die Hautfarbe Roys Steht immer wieder im Mittelpunkt und wird als Grund für seine unrechtmäßige Verhaftung angegeben. Aber gleichzeitig wird gezeigt, dass das Leben draußen Trotzdem für seine Frau weitergeht. Die Idee ist gut, aber die Entwicklung relativ vorhersehbar. Ich fand die Stimmung toll!
