The Seventh Commandment

by Barb McIntyre

Book Image Not Available
Overview
This book spans 30-plus years and tells the stories of four generations of women. It focuses on relationships; how they begin, what makes them last, and how they can cause both joy and sadness. It's about love, friendship, fidelity, honesty, and keeping secrets. Adultery has touched Sandra’s life, as well as the lives of her grandmother, mother, sister, daughter, and a close friend. One is not aware of it, and one has been deeply affected by it. One has only contemplated it, one only imagined it, one does not regret it, and it is one’s deepest secret. From the starry-eyed letter a soon-to-be-bride writes to herself, to the thoughts of her daughter when she reads that letter, these family members reveal themselves. They reveal how they live and love despite adultery, real or imagined, domestic abuse, the discovery that a loved one is gay, aging, and the death of a spouse.
