Their Separate Ways
What happened in the hearts of Tony Perotta and Hope Williams after the affair was exposed and they went their separate ways? Did they ever struggle with memories from their past relationship or with wishing things would have turned out differently? Was trust ever restored in their homes after their lives crashed and burned around them? Did they ever heal enough to enjoy their marriages as before or were they even worse off after their sin was revealed?

Their Separate Ways continues the saga the year after the exposure of Tony and Hope's extramarital affair. It's an honest and close-up look at the inner working of each of their hearts as they reflect on the painful memories resulting from that devastating choice. Experience with them the vast difference between couples who know true forgiveness and hope, and those who don't.

Here is the recent Romantic Times review for Their Separate Ways…
4 Stars by RT Rating

In a sequel to last year's Never Without Hope, Sutton explores the aftermath of an affair, alternating between the viewpoints of the two parties. A realistic view of marriage and communication provides thought-provoking drama.

 After the implosion of her affair with Tony, Hope has been working on rebuilding trust and intimacy with her husband. Tony, however, must carefully navigate around his mentally unstable, pregnant wife, who can't come to terms with what Tony has done. She threatens Tony with violence and the removal of his children if he strays again. What will be the ultimate price both Hope and Tony will have to pay for their infidelity?

Thanks for your comments, everyone. The RT rating was actually 4 stars. They don't give out five stars. :) This was my bravest book yet, and I admit I was a bit nervous regarding its reception but so far... so good. I guess the world really is ready for some redemptive stories with edge. :)
