For the sake of love, people stretch far beyond their usual boundaries—and sometimes snap. In Geir Gulliksen’s “A Story of a Marriage,” a man exerts extreme empathy to understand his wife’s infidelity. In “Thomas and Beal in the Midi,” third in the acclaimed Mason saga, Christopher Tilghman depicts an interracial marriage in the mid-1850s where each partner gives up nearly everything (one, an estate; the other, family) to be together.
