Dave Mitchell is relishing the success of his start-up company, DMI. Success, however, has come at a tremendous price on the home front. The closeness he once shared with his wife of twelve years is gone. Dave spends most of his time working, while Madeline is struggling with balancing her job and home. When she elects to take time off and let Dave run the business, their lives are forever changed. Revered by others as a man of strong faith, Dave is not above temptation. His professional relationship with his new secretary eventually crosses the line, and the two share a night of passion. Madeline is crushed when she discovers the affair, but she has sacrificed too much already to let go. She digs her heels in, refusing to give up her marriage, her family, her company, or her place in Dave's heart.
Dave Mitchell's family is shaken to its core when an illicit affair with his secretary, a woman twenty years his junior, results in a pregnancy. Dave has fervently sought redemption from God, but his troubles are far from over. His wife, Madeline, vows never to forgive him for selfishly destroying their family. Constant images of betrayal shove Madeline into divorce court, where the division of property ignites a nasty battle over the controlling interest in DMI, the multi-million dollar family business. She wants more than Dave can give and refuses to settle for less than thirteen years of marriage warrants. Madeline is determined not to lose again. Although the marriage is over, their professional bond can't be broken. She ends up with a seat on the board of directors and an executive office down the hall from Dave. Once the dust settles and the divorce is finalized, Dave accepts the consequences of his decision as irrevocable. His family is gone, but he remains certain that God has a plan for him and DMI. He's prepared to move on, but Madeline is enraged by Dave's persistent sense of peace and his ongoing connection with Sherry, the woman who ruined their lives. Madeline becomes unhinged, tormented by her pain, and obsessed with righting a terrible wrong. In the midst of all this chaos, Dave and Madeline's children are suffering. When an unspeakable tragedy occurs, they're forced to look at their individual contributions to this web of drama. Unless the Mitchell family learns the true meaning of unconditional love, the power of forgiveness, and God's amazing grace, they could be stuck on this tragic path for years to come.
