Can a mother face the secrets of her past in order to protect her daughter from the same mistakes?

Melanie and Will Connors seem like the perfect couple, but their marriage only looks good on the outside, having withered inside from a lack of intimacy.

The barriers Melanie faces to intimacy are hidden in her past—a misguided tryst with a trusted friend of her father's, a pattern of promiscuity as a teen, empty relationships in early adulthood. The only way Melanie sees to save herself from herself is to turn off her desires—even in her marriage.

Will insists they either work on the marriage—or work on the divorce. Their attempt at restoration occurs in the midst of a New Hampshire presidential primary that is rocked by violent protests and razor-sharp character assassinations. For the first time, their marriage begins to feel like a safe place.

As Melanie tries to sort through her own past, she sees her 16-year-old daughter's head turned by a charismatic older man on Will's campaign team. Can Melanie sift through her own rubble and find the voice to help guide her daughter—and possibly find the joy that God intended for her marriage?

Review by Rebecca
I was on the edge of my seat and hated to put the book down because of the plot, characters and theme. This book is the perfect mix of suspense, drama and romance. The story weaves through modern American culture highlighting the strong characters, morals and values. A woman must learn to forgive herself, repair her relationship with her husband and to mother out of love, not fear. The surrounding characters all have their own journeys and battles to overcome, and all enhance the overall theme of battling to live out one's faith in a society that is so focused on "what feels right." The book doesn't end with a pretty red bow tied on top; it leaves some things to the imagination some character's ending stories untold, which I love. Real life doesn't always wrap up so nicely. Like all other Shannon Ethridge books, I HIGHLY recommend this one! (Posted on 7/26/14)
