The Andersons' marriage is no longer the fairy tale it once was. Jake and Nora scramble to keep the pieces together, but hairline cracks of disillusionment and despair have been spreading, weakening the foundation beneath them. Jake steps up but in all the wrong ways. His concerted efforts to win Nora's approval only make him seem needy, and she becomes distant and withdrawn. Caught in a vulnerable place of hopelessness, she's swept off her feet by a disarming artist who wants to capture more than her image on canvas.
Tristan's devil-may-care confidence draws her in - no plans for the future, no dredging up the past. Everything about him is feelings and fire and freedom, and Nora burns brightly in his passionate embrace. But the affair starts to consume her. She cannot juggle both worlds, yet any choices she makes now will only bring pain and destruction to everyone around her. When it all comes to a cataclysmic head, Jake and Nora are left standing amid the ruins of everything they've built together, and they must choose whether to walk away or stay and fight for their happily ever after.

Excellent narration. A marriage in trouble. Fight with me for us. Jake and Nora make a decision to fight for their marriage, their love after she has an affair.
Reading about a marriage in trouble is hard to do. It brought forth emotions in me that I didn't expect. The well-rounded characters were flawed, as we all are. Leaving God out of marriage problems only leads to more problems. But I like how Becky Doughty writes and narrates her book with real truth and emotion. I look forward to listening to more of her books.
I received this audio book in exchange for an honest an unbiased review.
