Synopsis of The Life You Leave Behind
All Faye Donehoe wanted was someone to love. At 18, she married her high school sweetheart and fulfilled the only goal she ever bothered to set: leaving her claustrophobic hometown in the sunset for the excitement of Washington, D.C. Five years later, she’s a war widow in love with her employer, Jimmy Quinn. Older and wealthy, he’s also very married to an aloof goddess with secrets of her own. Though Faye succeeds in capturing Jimmy’s attention, she finds happiness comes at a staggering price.
Throw in a nosy grandmother, an eccentric cousin, along with Jimmy’s skeletons and it’s no wonder Faye’s life is spinning out of control. After a lifetime of poor choices she faces her most difficult one yet: living the “American Dream” or walking away from the life she always wanted.
