Q&A with Laura Dave, Author of The First HusbandIn Laura Dave’s newest novel, The First Husband, travel writer Annie Adams is sideswiped by her boyfriend’s announcement: He’s decided to end their five-year relationship and reconnect with someone else. Reeling from their breakup, Annie meets Griffin, a chef from Massachusetts. Fast forward just three months, and the two are married and moving to Williamsburg.

While trying to adjust to small-town life — and Griffin’s family and past — Annie is hit with another surprise: Her ex-boyfriend, Nick, is back and wants a second chance. As she tries to figure out her choice, along the way, Annie learns who she really is and discovers where she truly belongs.

The First Husband explores the big questions of love, happiness and authenticity. It explores what makes relationships work (and not work) and what happens when life doesn’t turn out like you expected or planned for.
