Alice Reese knows that the cheerful sounds of her family eating breakfast mask a ten--year marriage falling apart. As Alice and her husband, Will, struggle to understand--and perhaps recapture--the feelings that drew them together in the first place, their interior lives are sensitively and convincingly explored.
