Told in the alternating perspectives of a husband and wife in their thirties, an incisive new novel that explores what happens when a happily married couple decides to take an "intermission" from their relationship.

The unshakeable confidence Cass Coyne felt on her wedding day is gone, and, as a child of divorce, she's terrified of beginning a family with the wrong partner. Jonathan Coyne, on the other hand, is still smitten with Cass. It's true that the personality quirks he once found charming in his wife--her high standards, her unwavering self-possession--are beginning to grate. But these are merely minor challenges in an otherwise healthy relationship.

So it comes as a shock to Jonathan when Cass suddenly suggests a marital intermission: a six-month separation during which they'll figure out if they truly are well matched and if the comfortable life they've built together is really the one they want.

As they agree to meet up once a month to exchange custody of their beloved dog, Cass and Jonathan's hope is that during their time apart they will work out their issues as a couple. But they will soon discover those very issues are likely rooted in the things they don't talk about and the little secrets each of them has been working so hard to hide.
