Till death do us part... Eleanor Anderson has a beautiful home, a loving husband, a tranquil life. After thirty-eight years of marriage and her children now grown, she finally has time for herself. She's not expecting any surprises; certainly not to wake up one morning and find her husband dead in bed beside her from a massive heart attack. It's a devastating discovery... but not as much as the shock awaiting Eleanor when she learns the truth about her husband's secret life. And then there's the damaging document he signed before his death, which threatens to destroy her life. Claire Anderson isn't your average thirtysomething. A professor of psychology at a prestigious university, Claire has a successful career, a handsome husband, and two young children at home. But nothing in her background, including her academic accomplishments, prepares Claire for the horrendous reality of discovering that the life she'd led was all a lie... fostered by a husband who'd promised to love and cherish her forever. Two women from two generations, bound together by denial, anger, and grief. How far will their misery and fear push them? Does compassion rule the day, or will a husband's betrayal lead to a woman's revenge? What happens when each of these women comes face-to-face with the other wife?
