Here's the set-up:

A dangerous triangle:  Evelyn was a loyal and loving wife. Nat, her sexy and ambitious husband. Barbara was the other woman, beautiful and passionate, who thought she could have everything—including another woman’s husband. Their conflicting desires and opposing values lead to an unforgettable confrontation and a dramatic conclusion.

Who would win?  Who would lose? Who would triumph?

Spanning three tumultuous decades from the post-war Forties to the rebellious “Make Love, Not War” generation of the Sixties, Decades is the emotional story of a marriage, a family and a world in crisis. If you like quality fiction in which moving things happen to believable people, you will love Decades.
