The Solitaire Diaries
Chiara Kelly, author
When Tiffany’s gemologist Cay Vitale marries in court to do right by her unborn child, she does so without a diamond ring and winds up internally devastated. To ensure it would not happen again decades later, she carves out of raw grit three two-carat solitaires for her three sons to give to their future soul mates. As Cay’s skilled obsession with diamonds eventually takes its toll on her marriage to her Marine Master Sergeant husband Clinton, her sons Clive, Chris and Coby grow increasingly torn on whether to classify their mother’s ultimate gift as a blessing or a burden. In the end, all involved must determine what really lasts forever: love or diamonds.
