A seemingly happy and stable marriage spirals out of control in a hailstorm of hurt and betrayal.
Vivid and raw, full of the consequences of terrible actions done in the name of love, The Precious Life documents the unraveling of a marriage that, on the outside, appeared to have everything it needed to remain stable.
Joshua and Kathryn have settled for underachieving careers and a comfortable suburban lifestyle, coasting through life without any risk or adventure. But when secrets emerge about Kathryn's past, and a tragic accident sends the couple wheeling into grief, Joshua breaks away from their sheltered home and begins to fashion a second life for himself, brewing with anger, resentment, and, eventually, hatred for his wife that culminates in a murderous desire.
In its unflinching examination of the human condition, The Precious Life takes readers on a bumpy ride through the life of a couple on the verge of collapse.
