Pilar and Danny Valenzuela have been married for 14 years with two sons. Only police officer Danny believes that overachieving proves how much he cares for his family.

Pilar feels neglected and unloved. Danny hasnt touched her in more than six months and has been emotionally unavailable for years. When Danny realizes that Pilar is serious about divorcing him he pulls out all of the stops to get her to change her mind.

This story should be required reading for couples. It drives home that communication is essential in any relationship. It also relates the fact that divorce does not just involve the couple in the midst of it, but affects the children and extended family and friends also. (Mar., 209 pp., $3.99)
