From the bestselling author of The Carousel and Daybreak
comes a stirring, timely story of adultery and its impact on the American family.
Margaret and Adam Crane seem to have a near-perfect life—she’s
a teacher; he’s a computer executive—and together they are lovingly raising
their own children and Margaret’s orphaned niece. Then one day the phone rings—and
suddenly everything changes forever as a woman from Adam’s university days reappears
in his life, and an old affair reignites. At the same time, there are problems
in Adam’s workplace—a possible takeover and downsizing. The reverberations from
these two circumstances will touch many lives and bring with them changes that
no one could have predicted.
