Flora and Julian have fought for years, growing rubies in Manhattan and putting together enough performance to make Julian’s little company, the Good Company, stand out.

-New York Observer
This novel explores how the bond of friendship and marriage can be endured in a story of heart and conspiracy.
Sweeney’s effectiveness as a novelist is due to his eclectic friendliness, his ability to move between these characters and capture the emotions of others without judgment. I’m not sure who was right because I’m looking at some of the same events from different perspectives. After all, who is right? -But we have an exciting and sometimes comical sense of how each of us experiences the same events, the same decisions, and the same mistakes. In Sweeney’s hands, it’s not a recipe for endless conflict, but a path to understanding, and perhaps a path to forgiveness.
Who longs for a good company after more than a year of social distance? If you still have a few months left, Cynthia D’Aplix Sweeney is for you. His new novel, Good Company.
