This story is a family drama at the core. But you are introduced to a perfect (but not) family.
The husband, Michael, has mental issues, including paranoia and his behavior is going to drive the couple apart.
The background is Rhode Island, but reminds me of a book I just read called Indiscretion (not the plot but the surrounding).
The characters are good but I'm not sure if I was able to relate to one so much that I was "rooting" for him/her. But I did want the family to be "okay" despite the main characters spiraling downward. But that would not seem likely...
