Accidents of Marriage

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From the bestselling author of The Comfort of Lies, an engrossing look at the darker side of a marriage—and at how an ordinary family responds to an extraordinary crisis.

Maddy is a social worker trying to balance her career and three children. Years ago, she fell in love with Ben, a public defender, drawn to his fiery passion, but now he’s lashing out at her during his periodic verbal furies. She vacillates between tiptoeing around him and asserting herself for the sake of their kids—which works to keep a fragile peace—until the rainy day when they’re together in the car and Ben’s volatile temper gets the best of him, leaving Maddy in the hospital fighting for her life.

Randy Susan Meyers takes us inside the hearts and minds of her characters, alternating among the perspectives of Maddy, Ben, and their fourteen-year-old daughter. Accidents of Marriage is a provocative and stunning novel that will resonate deeply with women from all walks of life, ultimately revealing the challenges of family, faith, and forgiveness.

Accidents of Marriage

I’ve only read a little bit of it, but I am buying it because the preview was compelling. I am a social worker and have had similar experiences in both work and marriage. It just rings true!

I finished this book.... bits and pieces. It was monotonous in great part people just living their lives
3 stars because of the good parts and some of the profound truths the author put forth. If you read the book, there is a quote by Aristotle defining a "good man". One that all women should read. If you skip the book, look up the quote and judge by those words. If you find it, look me up and I'll give you five bucks😉
