Maddy Illica’s husband Ben shouts and throw things, but he’s not dangerous, not like the husbands of the battered women she counsels. Or so she thinks. Then one day he does more damage to her and their family than she could ever imagine. A deeply moving look at the destructive power of emotionally abusive relationships, and the lies and secrets that drive them.
Chris— From Accidents of Marriage
“When is the time when 'enough is enough?' Meyers deftly explores the issue of emotional abuse in her new novel. This is the story of Maddy and Ben and their three children. Maddy, a working mother, struggles to balance both career and family. Ben, a public defender, lives with a short fuse and drives the car that sends Maddy to the hospital in critical condition after a road rage encounter. Told from the points of view of Maddy, Ben, and Emma, the oldest sibling, Accidents of Marriage is an engrossing and provocative read.”
