Claire and Kirk are a normal couple, with three rowdy daughters. He works hard and long hours, taking frequent business trips. She is a stay-at-home mom, busying with the girls and the house. When a friendship with a coworker goes too far (just short of sex), Kirk believes he has fallen in love with another woman. His timing is exquisite. Unknown to Kirk, Claire is pregnant with their fourth child. Claire throws him out, but now Kirk thinks they should get help to try and put their marriage back together.
The reactions of Claire and Kirk are dead on. It is a story of putting their marriage back together again, but it is still a love story. You learn how both think and regret past errors. Kirk's family history explains why he is struggling with his betrayal of their marriage vows. You can feel his and Claire's pain. Subplots about the eldest daughter's problems and a dear friend's shaky romance lend texture and depth to the story without detracting from the primary focus.
