A Beautiful, Terrible Thing : A Memoir of Marriage and Betrayal
by Jen Waite




Overview -
A woman discovers her marriage is built on an illusion in this harrowing and ultimately inspiring memoir.

"Be forewarned: You won't sleep until you finish the last page."--Caroline Leavitt, author of Cruel Beautiful World

One night. One email. Two realities...

Before: Jen Waite has met the partner of her dreams. A handsome, loving man who becomes part of her family, evolving into her husband, her best friend, and the father of her infant daughter.

After: A disturbing email sparks suspicion, leading to an investigation of who this man really is and what was really happening in their marriage.

In alternating Before and After chapters, Waite obsessively analyzes her relationship, trying to find a single moment form the past five years that isn't part of the long con of lies and manipulation. Instead, she finds more lies, infidelity, and betrayal than she could have imagined. With the pacing and twists of a psychological thriller, A Beautiful, Terrible Thing looks at how a fairy tale can become a nightmare and what happens when "it could never happen to me" actually does.
