Devastated by her husband's betrayal, Jonah struggles to heal herself and her fractured family. But how does a woman born in an age of deference emerge as her own person? How does a man raised to embrace a traditional notion of masculinity reconstruct his identity? How does a family on the brink of disintegration reestablish a firm foundation? Set in the contemporary American Heartland and told in the distinctive voice of each member of the Strayhorn family, The Red Leather Chair grapples with these universal questions, taking the reader on a harrowing journey of rage, revenge, and, ultimately, redemption.
