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?
