Lee Woodruff, co-author with her husband CBS News correspondent Bob Woodruff of the number one New York Times best seller, In an Instant, will read from her latest, compulsively readable, novel, Those We Love Most, about marriage, family, and the ties that bind us all. On a bright June day, Maura Corrigan wakes up happy and secure, with a loving husband, and three healthy, vivacious children. By the end of the day, her entire world will be shattered and everything that she thinks she knows will have changed. In the aftermath of tragedy, the fractures and fissures in both Maura's life and her marriage become all to clear to not just her and her husband Pete, but also to her parents, who are grappling with hidden strains within their own marriage.
Told through the alternating perspectives of these four people over the course of a year, Those We Love Most chronicles how a sudden twist of fate forces them to confront their choices, examine their mistakes, fight for their most valuable relationships, and ultimately find their way back to each other.
