#1 national bestselling author ReShonda Tate Billingsley goes to the heart of a marriage on the rocks—and turns one woman’s anger and heartbreak into a triumph of the spirit.
No-nonsense divorce-court judge Vanessa Colton-Kirk has seen it all, presiding over the breakup of countless unhappy and disillusioned couples in her Houston courtroom. But now career-driven Vanessa is facing her own marriage crisis: when she chooses to work late on the night of her fifth wedding anniversary, her husband, Thomas, decides he’s had enough of her putting work before starting the family he so desperately wants—and he tells her he wants out.
Thomas has a few more bombshells for Vanessa before they are court-ordered to attend a spiritual retreat. She goes—but not without a fight, and determined to emerge the victor. Then a twist of fate helps her see things in a whole new light, and Vanessa must face the hard questions: Can she rebuild a bond that she had a big part in destroying? Have her years on the bench made her wiser—or just bitter? Can she open her heart to the renewing power of love and forgiveness?
