Here is the deal. These comments have been great because they tell me what most of you perceive. This book is NOT the first book, which is Never Without Hope. This book is the sequel. The title will stay Their Separate Ways because it's the only title with that name if you look for it on Amazon. If you remove Their then you get bunches of books on Amazon.
As far as the contrasting pictures goes, Hope is the woman and she has experienced forgiveness and renewal in her marriage to her husband after the affair, so she is joyful because she has been forgiven despite the painful betrayal in the past. He is the man she was cheating with. He does not know forgiveness and his wife is hateful and won't let him forget what he's done so he is despondent and hopeless. So their emotional portrayal has nothing to do with each other and everything to do with their marriage situations. That said, how do you feel now about the pictures... PLEASE comment as this helps a lot!
