Kate Ryker considered her 2-year-old marriage over. Her husband Alex had taken a job in Saudi Arabia & Kate refused to move with him. She had her own life to live-as founder, publisher, & editor of Missouri Woman magazine. Kate took control of her situation & filed for divorce, & when 7 months passed w/o any word from Alex, she thought her actions were final.
But Alex did not. He returned to Missouri with the legal papers shredded. He would not allow Kate to destory the sacred commitment of marriage-at least not w/o getting something from her in return!
