Accidents of Marriage by Randy Susan Meyers

September 2, 2014 from Atria Books

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.


Last year I read The Bracelet by Randy Susan Meyers and I loved it.  So I was pretty happy when it was announced that Accidents of Marriage would be released in September 2014.  There are parts of marriage and relationships that equally fascinate me and terrify me at the same time, so Accidents of Marriage by Randy Susan Meyers is right up my alley.  It also probably won’t help my already overactive imagination, but c’est la vie!

      Amy Poehler is absolutely hysterical. I usually read one or two biographies/memoirs each publishing season and this is certainly on my list for when it comes out!

      Thanks Jenn! I decided to try something different. I think I will do them like this from now on. Much easier to scroll through and focus on one book at a time! Broken Monsters and Of Bone and Thunder are both really good. You should add them to your TBR list!

      Thanks Julie! Trying something new and it seems to have worked out so I think I’ll stick with it. You do now have a lot of books to read on the plane ride. You know I’m always good for a book recommendation!

    OK, so the Jewel? Skip it. It’s pretty bad, the writing is worse than what you had in Selection and the story is really just a mash up of stuff that’s all have been done before. I was stupid enough to sign up for the tour for this, but if I didn’t, I would’ve dnfed it after 50 pages.

    Yes to Retribution – can’t wait!!! Also Belzhar and Little White Lies look great :) thanks for putting this together :)
