The wickedly hilarious, subversive story of a charming, irrepressible woman’s last days of freedom from marital bliss
Meet Lily Wilder—New Yorker, lawyer and bride-to-be. She has a dream job, friends who adore her, a family full of charismatic and loving women and a total catch of a fiance.
Also? She has no business getting married.
Lily’s fiance, Will, is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive and fond of a good drink (or five). And she loves men--a lot. As the wedding approaches in Lily’s Key West hometown, her nights--and mornings, and afternoons--of booze, laughter and questionable decisions with her best friend, Freddy, are an ever-present reminder of what she’ll be giving up come Saturday. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he know her? Lily’s mother, her grandmother and a bevy of stepmothers join forces to head off what they feel is a disaster in the making--but when Lily’s incorrigible, charming, philandering father turns up, the Wilders set a new bar for dysfunctional families. Meanwhile, a last-minute deposition threatens to up-end Lily’s wedding and career--and a dark secret from her past resurfaces, thanks to the appearance of an old friend and the scheming of her formidable future mother-in-law.
Joyous, brilliantly executed and endlessly funny, I Take You introduces a fabulously self-assured protagonist whose choices raise fresh question about gender politics, monogamy and the true meaning of fidelity.
