"[Metz] discovers [her dead husband] had numerous affairs, including a longtime relationship with one of her friends. Readers will be mesmerized as [she] seeks out his consorts and confronts them--sometimes with curiosity and sometimes with venom."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Documents the author's journey of grief, betrayal, and healing after the sudden early death of her husband to a pulmonary embolism, an event that rendered her a single mother and led to the discovery that her husband had been having an affair throughout their marriage with one of her best friends.
Annotation With a young daughter and a 16-year marriage to an adoring husband, Julie Metz thought she had the perfect life. But when her husband collapses and dies in their kitchen, Metz not only must cope with his death, but is forced to face the revelation that for their entire relationship her husband was unfaithful with her, carrying on a series of cruel affairs. With her entire concept of reality obliterated, Metz must, at the age of 44, reevaluate everything she has ever known about life, love, trust, and happiness. Her powerful memoir explores the secret undercurrents of a "normal" life, and shows how nothing is ever truly perfect.
