Erica Harding is eagerly anticipating the birth of her son with her husband, Jason, in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. As they excitedly await the arrival of their new baby, they also look forward to putting their shaky past behind them. Sadly, the baby’s birth is not the joyous event they hoped it would be; the couple suffers the loss of their full-term baby boy. Erica grieves, and Jason, finding himself unable to cope with his wife’s deep sadness as well as his own feelings, makes himself scarce emotionally as well as physically. When Erica learns that Jason has sought consolation in the arms of the woman with whom he conducted an affair years earlier, she feels betrayed and requests a separation.

Adrift, Erica finds herself spending more time at her local bookstore, where she meets a handsome employee. After a brief conversation with the man, Erica comes home and finds a mysterious note in her bag. Certain it’s from the man at the store, she embarks on an online flirtation, resulting in a dinner invitation. However, when she arrives for their get-together, her correspondent is not who she thought it would be. Faced with a new opportunity, Erica is forced to reconsider everything she knows about relationships and love, and she must come to a definitive decision about her foundering marriage.

Unexpectations is by turns utterly heartbreaking and wildly captivating. Author Barbara Beige taps into her own personal experiences with love and loss to create an entirely believable and likeable character in Erica, a character that the readers can sympathize with as well as cheer on in her new and exciting endeavor. Unexpectations is Barbara Beige’s first ‘Married Woman Coming Out’ novel.
