Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is it possible to be in love with two women at the same time? This is a question Jon has been asking himself frequently these days. He's loved his wife Ginny since the days when a chance encounter in the halls of their high school would leave him unable to speak. But recently Jon has found himself bewitched by Freddi, his colleague at the ad agency, where late-night brainstorming sessions devolve into giggles and sexual attraction. As Jon's guilt becomes all-consuming and Ginny inches closer discovery, a secret kept for thirty years threatens any hope of salvation. Weaving together past and present in a small Midwestern town, Schwarz beautifully conjures the emotional labyrinth of a marriage on the brink of collapse, and a history of love and revenge.

Synopsis:

Christina Schwartz, bestselling author of Drowning Ruth returns to small-town Wisconsin in this captivating novel of love and revenge.

In the summer of 1963 a scandalous event destroys a career, a friendship, and a family. Thirty years later, over the course of one July day, Jon struggles with whether to end his affair or his marriage, as his wife, Ginny, moves ever closer to discovering his adultery. But when Ginny begins working for an older man and Jon's mistress is courted by a new suitor, things cease to be as they appear. Weaving together past and present, Schwarz conjures the emotional labyrinth of a marriage on the brink of collapse.
