Accidents of Marriage
A Boston family struggles to adjust after a terrible accident in Meyers's (The Comfort of Lies, 2013) poignant latest. Maddy is a social worker trying to balance her career and three children. Years ago, she fell in love with Ben, a public defender, but now he's lashing out at her during his periodic verbal furies. The morning after yet another one of their arguments, Ben's angry encounter with another driver results in an accident that leaves Maddy in the hospital fighting for her life. Will the family come together--or fall apart? Thought-provoking and memorable.
