"A revealing, honest portrait of how love binds us together -- and drives us apart . . . I love this book!"
--Kate Jacobs, New York Times, bestselling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club

"Factor : SPF 50. A secret marriage, lies about affairs and money . . . No surprise this steamy story has been optioned by Universal Pictures."
--USA Today

--The Boston Globe

"How well do you know the person you love? How hard would you fight if that relationship were threatened? Those questions lie at the heart of Laura Dave's The Divorce Party and the answers aren't as clear cut as one might think."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"In lustrous, supple language and with breathtaking acuity, Laura Dave explores the intricate inner lives of two women as they struggle to know the men they love . . . They face the same thorny question: how many lies -- and how much truth -- can love bear?"
-Marisa de los Santos, author of Love Walked In

"Author Dave creates an intimate story about love, life, and new beginnings that will touch readers as her two strong women protagonists discover just how strong they really are."

"The Divorce Party examines young love, new love, destroyed love, and love after divorce . . . Laura Dave gets to the heart of true love in a way that makes the reader believe in love, even in the face of divorce . . . Riveting."
--Book Reporter
