Publisher Comments:

Alison Hopkins isn't just looking for Mr. Right . . . or even Mr. Big. She's holding out for the Big Love.@lt;BR@gt;@lt;BR@gt;When 32-year-old Alison's first real boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her - he steps out to buy mustard for a dinner party and never returns - it's time for Alison to reassess her lifelong search for romantic fulfillment. Does true love even exist? Is every romantic involvement with a coworker inevitably doomed? Does sex without commitment @lt;I@gt;always@lt;/I@gt; lead to disaster? Is a girl's evangelical Christian upbringing an impediment to her finding true happiness?@lt;BR@gt;@lt;BR@gt;Funnier than any chick-lit, as poised and accomplished as any literary debut this year, @lt;I@gt;The Big Love@lt;/I@gt; is a big-hearted, hilariously entertaining novel that readers all across America are falling for.

Synopsis:

- A top fifteen Book Sense pick.- A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy with real emotional heft--ideal for reading groups.- Published in hardcover in 7/04, THE BIG LOVE was one of Entertainment Weekly's 83 Ways to Make Summer Cool.

Synopsis:

Hilarious and heartbreaking, combining the emotional incisiveness of Jane Austen with the up-to-the-minute frankness of "Sex and the City," Dunn's latest work will be the passing must-read novel of the summer.

This little book was such a fast read that I was surprised at how quickly I was done with it. I spent a good portion of the time laughing out loud at the self-effacing, former Evangelical main character Alison. It gives some great, hilarious social commentary (religion, sex, love) without sounding preachy or over the top. A great summer read for sure.
