  • loose diamonds jewelryphoto by Merrick Fisher

    I’ve never bought loose diamonds but the idea of them appeals to me, sparkling stones that I imagine come wrapped in a velvet cloth . . .

    With her wonderful sense of humor, marvelously candid voice, and astonishing perception, Amy Ephron weaves together the most insightful, profound, and just plain funny stories of her life to form a tapestry of a woman’s experiences from childhood through young adulthood, marriage, divorce (and remarriage), and everything in between. Writing with great honesty and exacting prose, Ephron gives us an evocative, engaging, and often piercing look at modern life.

    Amy......can we expect another book soon? I'm going through withdrawals. I almost never read books AGAIN because there are SOOOOOOO many books to read. But I have recently read Una Rosa Blanca and A cup of Tea again. A Cup of Tea I read again for the like fifth time. You're killing me. Please please put me out of my misery..... I need MORE!!!

    Ms. Ephron, I picked up "White Rose" and I am knocked out by your phrases. Your prose reads like poetry. " there was a dignity about her" I know exactly what she is like. You have a new fan.
    Thanks.....
