About the book
It is 1953, and America is still haunted by the war. Pearlie and Holland live quietly with their son in San Francisco, with a barkless dog in a vine-covered house. Apart from Holland’s elderly aunts, the family have no regular visitors. That is until one day, a neat and elegantly dressed gentleman named Buzz appears at their door. The Story of a Marriage portrays three people trapped by the restrictions of their era, and reveals how we can never truly know the ones we love.

Very interesting book that slowly reveals the story of a particular marriage. It has surprising twists to the story. A very poignant read. I couldn’t believe the heroine would be so naive. A surprising ending that made me need to go back and re-read.
