Mona Lisa is a fire cracker that knows how to let her hair down and have a good time, and unlike Katherine, she plans to date around and have fun until Lincoln returns. Although she hasn't spoken to Lincoln since he proposed, she continues to hold onto the engagement ring he gave her and awaits the day he calls her. She eventually gives in to her old high school flame, Steven, and ends up marrying him because he is nice, adores her, and can provide for her every need. Steven seems to have an unlimited amount of money and soon Mona becomes curious about what he does for a living. To her dismay, she finds out with her own eyes, but it's too late to remove herself from the situation, so she goes along with it. Mona is highly intelligent, but will she be able to get herself out of the mess his profession creates? With a crazy obsessive husband and a now tainted past, what will Mona do when Lincoln finally contacts her?
Katherine tells Lincoln she thinks she's pregnant right after he proposes, but that still doesn't urge him to contact her during his time in the military. With an extreme amount of help from her mother, they raise his son and she manages to graduate college and follow her dream of being a newscaster.Read more ›
I love reading but it was hard to finish this book.
I am an avid reader and have read several of your previous books. I was extremely excited when I saw The Eternal Engagement in Barnes and Noble. So excited, in fact, that I chose your book over Pearl Cleage's new book. Big mistake. I will be returning the book to the store after work today and picking up Pearl Cleage's book. The set up of the book was awful the time flew by in the first half and then the second half all took place in one month. The ending was horrible. And being a HUD/VASH social worker for the VA, this portion of the book was totally off base. No way would a primary care physician be handling Housing Choice Vouchers. I was so disappointed with this story. It is very unrealistic to think that someone would wait for a guy they dated in highschool for ten years.
I will definitely think twice about picking up another one of your books in the future. :-(
The story itself focused on four characters whose lives and relationships are entwined disastrously. Lincoln somehow manages to propose to (with the same style ring) and impregnate both his girlfriend Katherine and his ex, Mona-Lisa literally moments before his high school graduation. The rest of the book follows Lincoln's ten-year stint in the Army, Mona-Lisa's impulsive and volatile marriage to long-time friend, Steven, and Katherine's attempts to maintain her image while raising her son as a single mother under her judgemental mother's eye.
To its credit, this book is aptly titled. It never seemed to end. Morrison's style of bouncing from the perspectives of each character was unnecessary and is probably why the book dragged along for so much longer than it needed. That, coupled with frustrating characters and a plot that was neither believable nor compelling, meant that the only reason I finished was simply to have the satisfaction of getting through it.
The character development was lacking. Each had their basic development and rarely deviated from it. Mona-Lisa was completely self-centered and only out for her benefit. For her being an adult, her thought processes and actions were extremely juvenile.Read more ›
