In this riveting follow-up to her searing novel of family and infidelity, The Affair, “Freedman demonstrates a keen understanding of relationships” (Publishers Weekly).
Over the course of one tumultuous Christmas Eve, Kathy Walker confirmed her suspicions about her husband’s affair; confronted his mistress, Stephanie; and saved her marriage. She and Robert have eighteen years, two teenagers, and a film production business between them—plus a bond that Kathy has no intention of giving up on. And as contrite as Robert is, Kathy can’t quite silence her doubts or distrust.
While Robert tries to regain his footing after his wife’s ultimatum and his mistress’s rejection, Stephanie makes a discovery: She’s pregnant. Her resolve to stay away from Robert wavers now that they could make a real family together—which could mean the final collapse of the family he’s already built Kathy.
In the days that follow, Stephanie, Robert, and Kathy must each reckon with the intricate realities of desire, the repercussions of betrayal, and the secrets that, once revealed, ripple through lives and relationships in thoroughly unexpected ways . . .
