Accidents of Marriage explores the damaging effects of a spouse’s emotional abuse. Maddy is a working mother trying to balance her career and three children. Years ago, she fell in love with Ben, a public defender, drawn to his fiery passion, but now he’s lashing out during his periodic rages. She vacillates between tiptoeing around him and asserting herself for the sake of their kids, keeping a fragile peace until one rainy day when Maddy and Ben are in the car together. Ben’s temper gets the best of him and Maddy is left fighting for her life. “With the heart of a novelist and the tenacity of an investigative journalist, Meyers flawlessly depicts the evolution and consequences of emotional abuse. A master of perspective with an uncanny understanding of human nature, she has managed to make us empathize with every member of this damaged family. This is an important story, one I’ll be thinking about for a long time.” —Brunonia Barry, New York Times and international best-selling author of The Lace Reader and The Map of True Places.
