Giveaway! MATRIMONY, by Joshua Henkin

In May, I received a hardback copy of Matrimony by Joshua Henkin from Gayle over at Everyday I Write The Book. She was hosting an online book club and I do believe it was my first experience participating in an online club. It was a positive experience to say the least.

Joshua Henkin was kind enough to answer all of our questions and he recently contacted me with some exciting news. Matrimony has been released in paperback! I loved this book and I LOVE the new cover!

To celebrate this exciting event, Mr. Henkin has offered to giveaway one inscribed copy of Matrimony to one of my readers! If you’d like to read my original post about Matrimony, click here.

  • Giveaway will close by 10/4, 7pm PST and a winner will be announced on this blog on Monday, 10/6. I will email the winner for his/her mailing address and then forward the information to Mr. Henkin so he can send out the book.

    Good Luck!

Matrimony, by Joshua Henkin

I just finished Matrimony, by Joshua Henkin. This is a story about relationships over a period of 15-20 years and centers around two couples as they go from college into marriage and how they each interact with family members and friends outside of their circle. Henkin does a remarkable job of describing the day to day conflicts. The characters are not perfect, but that makes them all the more believable and the story is very well written. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more of his books in the near future.

I heard about this book from Everyday I Write The Book and Gayle was kind enough to send me a copy. Thank you Gayle. She is hosting an online bookclub for this book on May 22nd. If you want more info on this, click here.

Till next time,
