Accidents of Marriage by Randy Susan Meyers,paperback to be published June 9, 2015; Washington Square Press
Genre: contemporary fiction
Maddy ran her tongue over her teeth, imagining he bitter taste of a crumbling tablet of Xanax. After a gut-wrenching day at the hospital nothing tempted her more than a chemical vacation. Nothing appealed to her less than cooking supper. Churning stomach acid - courtesy of work - coupled with anxiety that Ben might come home as frenzied as he'd left made a formidable appetite killer.Page 56:
"Don't move. You might have internal injuries." She pushed back wet hair on her forehead. As though offering a condolence prize, she held up a phone. "Do you want me to call someone for you? Do you want to make a call?"Book description:
Accidents of Marriage explores a topic rarely shown in fiction: the destruction left in the wake of spouse’s verbal fury. Ben never meant to hurt Maddy. He never imagined his recklessness would lead to tragedy.
