What she couldn’t give him was all the other woman had left.
Lena Brown seems to have it all: a successful career, a loving husband, good friends, and a devoted family. When she and her husband, Desmond, decide to have their first child, she never imagines they will be unable to conceive. Watching her best friend, Gayle, raise a daughter is hard enough and when Lena’s sister, Taren, announces that she is pregnant, Lena wonders if she will ever recover. Just as she is learning to accept a life of childlessness, Lena’s world is rocked even more by a hidden infidelity and new knowledge of the child that resulted. When The Bough Breaks is a poignant family drama that examines what it means to be family and the power of forgiveness.
