MARRIAGE IN JEOPARDY
When Lydia Quincy is attacked by the wife of one of her lawyer husband's clients, she loses the baby she's carrying. She can't cope with the loss or remain in the townhouse that reminds her of what happened. So Lydia forces her husband, Josh, to return to his hometown in Maine, a place he's been reluctant to go back to because of bad memories. It's where his sister drowned as a child while their parents were drunk. Marriage in Jeopardy (4), by Anna Adams, is strikingly realistic in that the author doesn't hesitate to portray the uglier side of life. But Adams also gives us hope for the future by mending strained family bonds.
