This is a great book! I loved the vivid characterizations and winning plot line. I couldn't put the book down until I was done with it!

B-O-R-I-N-G!!! And tedious reading. Takes the author 4-5 pages to describe a moment, not an event! This is so not a beach read! Based on the description that the book provides, it sounded so intersting, but unfortunately it fell so short. Just Blah!! I felt compelled to finish this book no matter how tedious it was (it was!) just to see if there perhaps was some saving grace.

    entertaining read, like 5 books in 1

    I enjoyed this book and how the stories all eventually intertwine. The different stories are easy to follow as these different lives go through the ages with their ups and downs, ultimately all coming together in the end.(the connection, not the people) Plus I also really enjoyed the true life based core of the story, the famous diamond ads that changed the way we all think of weddings and engagements. I too fell for all the marketing material. Genius.

    Another  great summer read from Sullivan. However, characters were disjointed until the very last paragraph. I would have liked this book even better if she had started with that last thought and then gone back to tell the stories. Loved Frances and the advertising agency piece of the story!

    Highly recommended.

    Excellent book. Very well written. Interesting how the stories are woven into the history of diamonds and the advertizing agency's intimate involvement. Makes me want to rid myself of my diamonds.

    Interesting Info on Diamonds

    The only problem I had is that it skips around too much between story lines and time periods. Seemed to be just too much going on and all the ends were tied a little too conveniently. It did make me appreciate my ring more, though!
