Publisher Comments:

Griffin is a happy man. Settled comfortably in a Chicago suburb, he adores his eight-year-old daughter, Zoe, and his wife Ellen. But when Griffin wakes one morning to hear of Ellen's love affair with another man and her request for a divorce, his view of life is irrevocably altered. Overnight he goes from being a husband to his wife's roommate, from a lover to a man denied passion and companionship. Now he must either move on or fight for his marriage, forgive or condemn his wife for her betrayal, deny or face upto the contributions he made to the sudden undoing of his seemingly perfect life. With startling clarity and a trademark blend of humor and poignancy, "Say When follows a man on an emotional journey to redefine his notions about love and happiness and asks questions relevant to any contemporary couple: when is a relationship worth saving and when is it better to let it go? Might a man and a woman define betrayal differently? How honest are we with those to whom we are ostensibly closest? Searingly honest, "Say When is an engaging and memorable story that takes readers into the heart of a modern marriage, where intimacy and love, denial and pain so often collide.

Review:

"Painfully real but also good humored." Library Journal

Synopsis:

When is a marriage worth saving and when is it best to let go? When do half-truths turn into full-blown lies? When does betrayal end and passion begin?

Say When is a compelling, complex novel that takes readers into the heart of a modern marriage where companionship and intimacy, and denial and pain, so often collide. "Of course he knew she was seeing someone," begins the story of Frank Griffin, a man who's willing to overlook his wife's infidelity — he would let her have this, this thrilling little romance — for the sake of keeping his family intact. But when the forty-year-old Ellen requests a divorce on the basis that she has finally found true, romantic love, Griffin must decide whether to fight or flee...or search elsewhere for the kind of life he always dreamed of.

With Elizabeth Berg's trademark blend of rare insight, raw emotion, and hard-won wisdom, Say When is a work of startling revelation that no reader will soon forget.

Synopsis:

Searingly honest, "Say When," now in paperback, is an engaging and memorable story that takes readers into the heart of a modern marriage, where intimacy and love, denial and pain so often collide.
