Synopsis

Nick and Trish married within two months of meeting each other. A thoroughly modern couple with demanding careers–Nick is a stock trader, Trish works in international marketing–they are drawn together by a fiercely erotic bond. Trish has a voracious sexual appetite, and Nick considers himself the luckiest man in the world. As they negotiate the pitfalls of a new marriage–background differences, meddlesome friends, ghosts of former lovers–they slowly grow comfortable and find bliss in domestic preparations for the blessing of pregnancy. But, when Trish’s past rears its head, she’s forced to make a choice that will set their lives in completely unexpected directions.

Alternating between electric erotic encounters and affecting portraits of fatherhood, Sigerson offers deep insights into the intricacies of love, passion, and deceit in a contemporary family.


From the Trade Paperback edition.
