Acclaimed author Anita Doreen Diggs—whose work has been hailed as "groundbreaking" (Book Page)—examines how a devastating tragedy forever changes the dynamics of a marriage in this profoundly moving new novel Mel and Adrienne Jordan had the kind of marriage most couples only dream about. Mel had abandoned his womanizing ways to settle down with the smartest, sexiest woman he’d ever met—and had absolutely no regrets. Neither did his wife. Between caring for their infant daughter and tending to their small but lovely home in New York City, Adrienne didn’t have time to think about the singing career she’d pursued and then abandoned years ago. Landing a recording contract had once been her greatest ambition—but she hardly ever thought about it anymore. Life was that good. But then one day a fire sweeps through their home, killing their beloved daughter—and nearly destroying their marriage. Convinced that he is to blame for the tragedy, Mel returns to the mean streets of his youth—and indulges in the drugs, drink, and women he finds there. Adrienne works long hours at a tedious job, desperate to get ahead—even though she’s not really sure where she’s going. As they drift further into their grief—and away from each other—Mel and Adrienne start to wonder if they can ever reclaim what they had. And they soon realize that their greatest challenge will be trying to save the one thing they had always taken for granted: their love.
