How do you make sense of your husband’s suggestions for an open marriage? How do you keep it all together, when you are secretly falling apart? This remarkable true story chronicles a relationship spanning over thirty years and follows Carol Murray through her years as a teenager, to wife, to mother, and to the day that changes her life forever. The day out of which a new life is forced to begin. It’s a story of determination and commitment to family, and of coming to terms with our lives and finding courage in those we love.
