Laura Frye seems to have it all. She has a wonderful husband, two lovely children and is the owner of a successful restaurant. But when her CPA husband Jeffrey doesn't show up one night, Laura is plunged into a nightmare. It seems that Jeffrey is wanted for tax fraud, and the IRS subsequently freezes all her assets. When Jeffrey's brother Christian appears on the scene (he was Laura's first love) it seems like a dream come true. As Christian helps Laura sort through the nightmare her life has become (not only was Jeff a criminal, it appears he is an adulterer as well), the pair slowly begin to fall in love. But can Laura put the past behind her and start anew?
A Woman Betrayed was first issued as a mass market paperback. Now, her publishers have met the demand for the re-release in hardcover of the bestselling author's early works. Although written in 1991, A Woman Betrayed rings true today. Laura's story (unfortunately) is not far-fetched at all, as anyone who reads the news will know. Barbara Delinsky excels at characterizations: Laura, Christian and the other family members and friends all seem like real people. This is a story which will truly tug at your heartstrings, as you root for Laura and Christian to find the happiness that they both deserve.
