Brilliance Audio, Inc. Fiction Six years have passed since Jake Sanders
watched the love of his life, Natalie, marry Todd. For six years, he hid a broken heart by focusing on his career as a college professor. But when he sees Todd’s obituary in the newspaper, he can’t stay away any longer. Finally, he sees Todd’s wife—but it’s not Natalie. Whoever the widow is, she and Todd have been married for over a decade; and with that fact, he learns that his life is based on fiction, and digging for the truth can be life-threatening.
