Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was a big year for new relationships in the Patterson household. Wanting to avoid an elaborate, expensive wedding, Michael and Deanna married in secret and moved in together. Meanwhile, her mother continued to engineer a huge social affair, which threatened to upset an already delicate relationship between the two families. When Elly helped her reluctant daughter-in-law choose a dress, it brought them closer together-as confidantes and friends-and in the end, the wedding was beautiful.Meanwhile, Grandpa Jim began a slow, sweet courtship with Iris, whom he met at the Wednesday night Legion dance, and Elizabeth moved in with her boyfriend, Eric. She soon suspected he was not her knight in shining armor, and Anthony, the boy Elly and John always hoped Elizabeth would marry, becomes engaged to someone else.With This Ring gives readers more of what they enjoy most: a sense of connection, of being one of the participants in this humorous lifelike comic strip "saga." Like the many For Better or For Worse books that have preceded it, With This Ring is certain to be a popular best-seller.

Synopsis:

Gleaned from the "For Better or For Worse" syndicated strip, this collection embodies the ups and downs of matrimony.
