"I love this book's deft, fresh take on male-female relationships." --Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Belong to Me

"A vibrant, nuanced novel about marriage, identity, and the moment when we realize that the shimmer of fantasy pales next to the tumultuous reality of ordinary, everyday happiness." --Carolyn Parkhurst, author of The Dogs of Babel

In The Ninth Wife by Amy Stolls, Bess Gray has just learned that the man she loves, the man who asked for her hand in marriage, has been married eight times before. This funny, touching, and surprising novel follows Bess on her cross-country odyssey to learn about her oft-wed fianc#65533; from the eight ex-spouses who came before. Stolls, an acclaimed author of Young Adult novels and winner of the Parents' Choice Gold Award brilliantly explores the very grown-up world of male-female relationships and family dynamics in the delightful, unforgettable new masterwork of contemporary women's fiction.
