Brentwood - Wednesday, February 5th at 6:30 pm - Carla Malden discusses and signs "Search Heartbreak"
Join us on Wednesday, February 5th at 6:30 pm as we welcome Carla Malden to the store to discuss and sign Search Heartache!
Maura Fielder looks like she has the perfect life: every expectation fulfilled. But under the illusory surface of perfection, Maura finds herself blindsided by what she discovers on her husband’s computer. She has no emotional cubby hole into which she can shove this ghost from her husband’s past, so instead, Maura upends her life -- thrashing her marriage, alienating her daughter, and eroding her own moral center. On the verge of sacrificing everything she holds dear to her own obsession, how does Maura manage to regain her equilibrium and reclaim her life?
In this post-privacy new world, any woman can find heartache if she searches hard enough.
