"A smart, thoughtful look at marriage and love." --POPSUGAR

"Through alternating views (and years), Allison Winn Scotch crafts a heart-wrenching tale." --Us Weekly

When their paths first cross, Ben Livingston is a fledgling screenwriter on the brink of success; Tatum Connelly is a struggling actress tending bar in a New York City dive. They fall in love, they marry, they become parents, and they think only of the future. But as the years go by, Tatum's stardom rises while Ben's fades. In a marriage that bears the fallout of ambition and fame, Ben and Tatum are at a crossroads. Now all they can do is think back...

A life of passion, joy, tragedy, and loss--once shared--becomes one as shifting and unpredictable as a memory. And as they explore the ways love can bend and break, they recount their individual versions of the story, Ben's moving backward and Tatum's moving forward, each wondering what they can do now to make it all right.
