Sheridan’s husband wanted to stop living a lie, but how was she going to live her life knowing the truth?
"There’s no other way to say this. I’m in love with someone else." With these words, Sheridan Hart’s life as she knows it comes to a crashing halt. She thought she was living every woman’s dream: for the past seventeen years of marriage, Quentin had been a model husband, father, and business partner. But for all those years, he’d been hiding a secret from her. In fact, he had kept his secret from everyone. His startling confession is a lifelong attraction to men, and he is leaving her to be with his lover.
While coming to grips with the destruction of her marriage, Sheridan must also deal with the emotional reactions of her sixteen-year-old son and ten-year-old daughter. When word gets out about Quentin, everybody has something to say — her family, her friends, and her church community all have advice to give and judgment to dole out. But at the end of the day, Sheridan must lean on her faith and her heart to decide what’s best for her family.
