For over a year, journalist Laurie Abraham sat in with five couples as they underwent the process of group marriage therapy. Originally published as The New York Times Magazine's cover story "Can This Marriage Be Saved?" this novel expands on the subject and allows Abraham to go into depth on all five couples and their struggles with intimacy, power imbalances, secrets, and standing on the verge of divorce.
