Reflections on the Ring is a vignette about an unexpected turn in a ladies night out. The women have gathered together to share their wedding albums when one woman admits she doesn’t have pictures to share. Instead, she has a love story.
Told from author Lori Colombo Dunham’s point of view, her tale is about how she married a man she hardly knew after conceiving his child. Fortunately, he is the kind of guy willing to start (or continue) a family, though she wonders if she’s making a mistake by choosing to share her life with a complete stranger. Through hard work and commitment, the couple make the marriage a success.
Sprinkled with quotes from various self-help books and the Bible, each chapter ends with Reflections on the Ring, a few thoughts on what it takes to make a marriage.
In a “me first” society with so many examples of Bridezilla stories, it’s refreshing to read about a woman who puts her marriage and her family at the top of her priority list. The Reflections on the Ring provide a nice reminder (or possibly new information) to women who want the same thing.
It’s a quick read, and the author will hopefully put it on Kindle.
Yeah, about that Kindle thing. It should be available in that format and on Amazon in a few more weeks. At least that’s what I’ve been told. I’ll make an announcement here on the blog when it is. Thank you for your patience, readers. I’m still navigating my way around the brave new world of self-publishing and social media. 😉
