Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A novel that explores the end of that intimate and personal journey, marriage. It's about a divorce that rips apart two people who at one time both thought the other was their soul mate, their reason for living. When one person wants more than they can ever get from the other, then they seek out someone new, someone who can give them what it is they crave. Like a serpent, they leave their old life behind like a shed skin. The hardest thing for any of us to accept is that some things in this life are beyond our control. Pete Graham is left by his beautiful, sexy young wife Terri for a much richer man. She knows what she wants out of life and how to get it and that means she needs a man who would gladly leave a wife of his own, a wife 15 years his senior and no longer the sexy, alluring older woman she was when he first met her. A woman who feels her age and vulnerability, especially as he left her with more than just a sense of total loss.
