Told from the alternating perspectives of a husband and

After five long years, the unshakable confidence Cass
Coyne felt as a bride is gone. Her husband, Jonathan, on

they begin to see that calculated silences just like
these have helped to drive them apart--and that it may
finally be time to confront the blistering secrets
they've been avoiding.
