Rich And Pretty
Sarah and Lauren have been friends for years—decades—and their friendship has endured many important periods of their lives. Now in their thirties, their lives are starting to pull farther and farther apart—Sarah works at a charity and is getting married, while Lauren is steadfastly single and works in publishing—and both women are starting to feel the distance. Both are starting to question the friendship. Are they still friends due to convenience and habit, or is there truly something deeper there?
Rumaan Alam’s Rich and Pretty explores ideas that are understandable and recognizable to today’s professional women. Along with the essential questions about friendship and time, this novel will get readers thinking about relationships, marriage, babies, age, and more. The writing style might be a little hard for some readers to embrace at first, but once readers get deeper into the story they’ll have a hard time putting the book down. It covers a wide span of time, stretching from the early stages of wedding planning to years beyond that monumental event, with flashbacks that give readers a window into childhood. This is a deep-thinking novel.
