Story of a Marriage by Andrew Sean Greer

This slender novel's beauty took me by surprised. It traces the 1953 love story of childhood sweethearts, Pearlie and Holland Cook, whose marriage is interrupted when Buzz Drummond emerges from Holland's past. Behind every consideration of the secrets of marriage, shines the light of the racial and political tensions of the 1950s.
