Mel and Adrienne Jordan had the kind of marriage most couples only dream about - until a fire ravaged their home and their lives. Convinced that he is to blame for the tragedy, Mel returns to the mean streets of his youth and indulges in the drugs, drink and women he had once left behind. Adrienne works long hours, desperate to get ahead even if she doesn't know where she's going. But as they drift further and further apart, they begin to realise that their greatest challenge will be trying to save the one thing they has always taken for granted: their love.

Booklist Review

Mel and Adrienne Jordan's relationship begins to crumple when they lose their daughter in a fire. They are so devastated by the accident that they escape from the marriage. Mel moves in with his sister, Debra. Her lifestyle and acquaintances make it easy for him to be lured back into his former life of women, drugs, and alcohol. Adrienne goes to live with her brother, Dan, and his wife. They provide unconditional support and suggest professional counseling for the couple. Rather than seek help, Adrienne and Mel move into an apartment and attempt to put their marriage on track and their lives back together. Attempts at reconciliation and forgiveness seem futile. But eventually they realize that their marriage is worth saving. Even with the cliff-hanging, abrupt ending, this is an entertaining story about people dealing with real emotions, thoughts, and behavior. Lillian Lewis
