In the story ABLE and LIZ are recently married after a twenty one year friendship. Both Able and Liz forged new lives and relationships with other individuals only to find themselves back in each others arms. However, there are struggles early on in their marriage because of addiction and dependency issues. They love each other but their union is proving to be toxic. This novel shines a light on the toxic nature of love and human emotion when loyalties are misplaced. Throughout the pages of this book you see lies, deceit and injustices being acted out in a vicious cycle of instability. Hurricane Katrina is briefly mentioned to heighten the depth of Ables ability to be a fierce man of substance. The book is bringing light to the hidden and raw emotions of a struggle. I guess you can reference it to the good versus evil, night compared to day and sad verses happy ideologies.
