I really enjoy books that explore the results of decisions - especially well-meaning ones that turn out to be not the best decision. At any given moment, we all hope we make the best possible choice based on the information we have and the circumstances we're confronted with. But in this case, a really tough decision gets an unusual twist as someone else's action creates a very unexpected complication. Hidden secrets tear at the relationship between a man and wife; they struggle to cope with the pain that they perceive and carry in different ways. I was disappointed, but not surprised, when the conflict breaks their marriage apart (fortunately no graphic descriptions of improprieties that occur). And I didn't always appreciate when characters appeared and disappeared in the story line. But overall, I found the story well-developed and it held my attention, eager to hear how it would resolve.
