Recovering from a brutal physical attack that almost killed her, thirty-five-year-old Charlotte Halsey soon learns that her husband Milo Robicheaux, a famous black actor, is in jail for the crime, forcing Charlotte to recollect their history together in order to discover the truth, in a powerful debut novel of marriage, fame, and identity.

Blackwell North Amer
Charlotte Halsey and Milo Robicheaux met briefly in college in the 1970s, where she was a beautiful, troubled girl hungry for freedom, and he was the star athlete with Olympic dreams. Years later, when she is a successful model and he a famous sports hero turned actor, their paths cross again in New York City and they fall in love.
But their marriage is soon fraught with tension. As Milo's celebrity skyrockets, motherhood ends Charlotte's career, leaving her increasingly alienated from the man she believed she knew so well. Jealousy and mistrust grow between them even as they strive to build a life together against increasing odds.

I enjoy happy endings, and this was a disappointment.

Manning's writing kept me glued to the novel for days until I finished. We get the story from the protagonist as she is telling us the tale of her doomed relationship with an athlete. She is white, he black. After reading it, I found reviews likening the story to Nicole Brown-OJ Simpson story but I didn't make that comparison at all. What I liked most was the perspective of a relationship from one person who you aren't sure is a reliable narrator. An excellent read.
