Waiting on Wednesday-Accidents of Marriage
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Every week, book nerds everywhere gush about upcoming books we CANNOT WAIT to come out!
This book touches on some serious issues that take place in families and relationships. Although it sounds heart-wrenching, it also sounds like one of those books that delves deeply into characters’ motivations and development. I enjoy reading books with such themes. “Accidents of Marriage: A Novel” by Randy Susan Meyers comes out September 2, 2014.
“From the bestselling author of The Comfort of Lies, an engrossing look at the darker side of a marriage—and at how an ordinary family responds to an extraordinary crisis.
Maddy is a social worker trying to balance her career and three children. Years ago, she fell in love with Ben, a public defender, drawn to his fiery passion, but now he’s lashing out at her during his periodic verbal furies. She vacillates between tiptoeing around him and asserting herself for the sake of their kids—which works to keep a fragile peace—until the rainy day when they’re together in the car and Ben’s volatile temper gets the best of him, leaving Maddy in the hospital fighting for her life.
Randy Susan Meyers takes us inside the hearts and minds of her characters, alternating among the perspectives of Maddy, Ben, and their fourteen-year-old daughter. Accidents of Marriage is a provocative and stunning novel that will resonate deeply with women from all walks of life, ultimately revealing the challenges of family, faith, and forgiveness.” (Description from Amazon.com)
