Melinda Claytonabout this book: Phillip and Anna Lewinsky have built a comfortable life for themselves in spite of the death of their first child. Peacefully settled into satisfying careers, dividing free time between travel and friends, the Lewinsky's appear to be approaching their middle years with the contented familiarity of a couple happy with the path they have chosen.
But when Anna unexpectedly becomes pregnant at the age of forty-three, the long buried scars of their grief are suddenly exposed. As desires clash, misunderstandings abound, and decisions are irrevocably made, the fractured foundation of their marriage begins to crumble until only tragedy remains.
In a story ripped straight from the headlines, Blessed Are the Wholly Broken explores the boundaries of unresolved grief, postpartum depression, family loyalty, and friendship.
What reviewers are saying:
• "[A] stunning novel that explores the storm and stress of a marriage where both husband and wife and their long-enduring best friend Brian have cause to wonder at what loving moment was the die cast and with which random misunderstanding did their marriage become a prison. Blessed Are the Wholly Broken is wholly satisfying and shockingly memorable." — Literary Aficionado
