Amanda fought hard to prove her love. “I forgot, Amanda.” Jarod’s dark eyes mocked her as he spoke. “You’re wrapped up in those romantic notions about husbands and wives and the happily‑ever‑afters.” But Amanda kept her secret fear—that someday all this happiness must end—firmly pushed to the back of her mind. She was determined that the days, weeks, or months spent with Jarod would be heaven. Because she knew that living without him would be agony.

Tender where he was severe, she was a warmhearted hostess renowned for her conversation. Most important, she was Edward’s equal in religious devotion. As a frie

S.B. Like many of his novels, Spanish author Javier Marías’ new book, Thus Bad Begins, isn’t exactly a mystery, though it is mysterious.
