Gilbert struck literary gold with her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love. Her latest outing starts where that book left off, with the author head over heels for Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who’d been living in Indonesia when they met.
Resettling in America, the couple swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government, which-after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at an American border crossing-gave the couple a choice: they could either get married or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again. Here, Gilbert tackles her fears about marriage with the help of historical research, interviews and much personal reflection.
