An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Celestial and Roy, a young African American couple, have not been married very long when on a terrible night Roy is accused of rape, found guilty and sent to prison for twelve years.
Celestial waits, but as time goes on she must also move on.
The book takes us through the long years of the imprisonment of an innocent man and his wife, who is also innocent, and how their lives transpire in the interim.
An excellent read.
