Behind the shiny façade of her seemingly idyllic life, Mattie Hart feels as though she is gradually falling apart. After sixteen years of marriage, she has discovered that her husband Jake, a high-profile defense attorney, is ensconced in yet another affair.But it is only when Jake finally confesses his infidelity and leaves to live with his girlfriend that a far greater tragedy descends upon the embattled Hart family — Mattie receives some devastating news that will alter all of their lives. Racked with guilt, Jake returns home to take care of Mattie. Here, in this most daunting and unexpected of circumstances, Joy Fielding deftly reveals the astonishing power of love to defy the greatest odds and to heal the deepest wounds.
