Summary
In this poignant and insightful new novel, the acclaimed author of The Good Life delves beneath the shimmering surface of one couple's evolving marriage. . . Karen Spears and Bob Parsons meet in college and embark upon the kind of enviable, picture-perfect relationship featured in romantic movies. Bob is ambitious and adoring;Karen is bright and beautiful. And nothing seems more natural to them than getting married right after Karen's graduation. Newlywed life meets all of Karen's expectations. Bob's career is soaring and Karen has a fulfilling job of her own—one that's put on hold when she becomes pregnant. But their caring partnership begins to slip away as Bob's single-minded pursuit of the next promotion blinds him to how overwhelmed Karen feels as a stay-at-home mom. When resentment and disenchantment build on both sides, Karen finds herself at a crossroads. What happens when reality erodes your ideal relationship? How do you know when to stay and when to go? And how much can any marriage endure before it becomes just another statistic? Profoundly honest and revealing, A Changing Marriage is a vivid portrait of relationships at their most intricate—and most familiar. Praise for Susan Kietzman's The Good Life "Kietzman's well crafted characterizations give the narrative its depth. . ..Readers will find themselves drawn into the tragedies and triumphs of this fictional family—distinct and yet utterly relatable." --Hartford Books Examiner
