As Jake and Ellen Brighton prepare for a new life together on the eve of their youngest son's high school graduation, their life begins to fall apart. Forty-seven-year-old Ellen is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. While Ellen's mind and body degenerate, Jake questions God's justice in letting his wife suffer, and he confronts his own weaknesses as he contemplates breaking his wedding vows for the consolations and pleasures that intimacy with another woman will bring him in his time of need. First novelist Raney has fashioned a startlingly honest portrayal of love, commitment, and redemption in the midst of tragedy that will appeal strongly to fans of Janette Oke and Neva Coyle. Recommended for public libraries.
