Summary:
"Psychopaths are manipulative, remorseless. They feel no guilt. What would happen if you thought you might be married to one? Jen Waite loves her husband. Marco is sexy, funny, her best friend--and he makes her feel like the most important person in the world. When they have their first baby, her life feels perfect. But then, just three weeks later, she accidentally reads an e-mail that she was never supposed to see, and it is as if someone has aimed a wrecking ball at her life. When Marco swears that what she saw was a simple misunderstanding, Jen desperately tries to rebuild trust in her marriage. Instead, she finds more lies, infidelity, and betrayal than she could have imagined. During a time when she should have been enjoying the sweetness of young parenthood, Jen is set adrift, with only her drive to uncover the truth guiding her. She obsessively tries to find a single moment from the past five years of her relationship with Marco to prove she once had something real, that she wasn't crazy. Gradually, her sleuthing and persistent research yield a shocking but ultimately liberating discovery: Marco fits the textbook definition of a psychopath. A memoir of incredible power, A Beautiful, Terrible Thing is a harrowing and inspiring account of a woman who finds strength forged by fire when everything she believed in turns out to be an illusion."--Jacket flap.
