Summary
Behind the shiny facade of her seemingly idyllic life in Chicago, Mattie Hart feels as if she is falling apart. After sixteen years of marriage, and one beautiful teenage daughter, Mattie has discovered that her husband, Jake, a high-profile defense attorney, is ensconced in yet another love affair. It is only after Jake finally confesses his infidelity and leaves to live with his girlfriend that a far greater crisis descends upon the embattled Hart family -- Mattie receives some devastating news that will alter all their lives
Summary
When Mattie discovers her husband, Jake's most recent infidelity and is ready to move on with her life, she receives the devastating news that she has ALS - a neurodegenerative disease that severely affects her life expectancy and everything she holds dear. Struggling with a guilty conscience, Jake moves back home to care for his wife and repair relations with their angry teenage daughter. It is during their time together he falls in love with Mattie for the first time.
