Bonds over Chauncey Waters by Janelle Allum
Divorce. Not a word any person wants to hear. But by thirty years old Geraldine "Geri" Walker finds herself confronting just that dreadful word when Jordy Bishop—the only man she’s ever loved—walks out.
Now, the focus is on selling their marital home to avoid a messy breakup. The only hitch is the house is located in Chauncey, a small, old-fashioned town which frowns on divorce so much that they are forced to pretend to be a happy couple to get the house sold.
They go along with the ruse for financial gain and independence, but when the estranged husband and wife come together for business, they realize that distance has not erased the past…or the pain. In fact, coming together compels them to finally address the secret which led to the demise of their marriage—a secret that’s been eddying beneath the surface for far longer than imagined. However, the truth can often be a blessing and a curse. It can provide an emotional release or cause a torrent of emotions. In the end, Geri and Jordy must decide what the truth is really worth to them.
