The Accidental Marriage by Annette Haws (Goodreads | Amazon | B&N)
Publication date: Decmber 10, 2013

Publisher: Cedar Fort Publishing
Synopsis:

Nina Rushforth was born with a silver spoon caught in her throat. She and her father have mapped out a future that includes a brilliant legal career, a marriage to an equally stellar attorney or Wall Street whiz kid, and eventually the production of three perfect children. A semester at St. Andrew's University in Scotland, was part of the plan, but falling in love with a handsome missionary was not.

Six months later, after Elliot returns from his mission and after a tumultuous courtship, Nina finds herself teaching at a junior high school, learning to keep house in a minuscule apartment, and living with a man who doesn't know any more about being married than she does. Intimacy, cooking, laundry, lesson plans, and a tug-of-war with a possessive mother-in-law prove to be more overwhelming than Nina can successfully manage. The newlyweds awaken to realize the head on the adjacent pillow belongs to a stranger.

This novel captures the heartbreak of young love caught in the turbulent social crosscurrents of the 70's, at a time when brave women struggled to find dignity and equality in the workplace, as well as peace at home.

Praise for THE ACCIDENTAL MARRIAGE: 

“A thoughtful, heartbreaking, and often laugh-out-loud romp… Annette Haws explores the interesting question: What keeps a marriage together?” 
--Terrell Dougan, a columnist for the Huffington Post and the author of That Went Well: Adventures in Caring for my Sister 

“Haws delivers a story that makes you want to rush to the end to find out what happens and prose that makes you want to slow down and savor it.” 
--Karey White, author of For What It’s Worth, Gifted, and My Own Mr. Darcy 

“If you want a story with plot, character and real, deep meaning that will leave you thinking long after you’re done, this is the book for you.” 
--Shannon Guymon, author of Do Over
