After sixteen years of marriage, and a beautiful teenage daughter, Mattie discovers that her husband Jake is ensconced in yet another affair. It is only after Jake confesses his infidelity and leaves home that Mattie receives even more devastating news. News that will alter all their lives. Now, for the first time, Mattie and Jake are about to discover what love really means. How its astonishing power can defy the greatest odds and heal the deepest wounds.
