New novel looks at marital regret and forgiveness
Many women if given a chance and strong enough to walk away would leave an unfaithful
husband who traveled a lot. This is what Anna Manning planned to do right before she found out
that her husband, Edward, is dying of cancer and has less than six months to live. Anna's decision
provides the basis for Anjuelle Floyd's novel, The House, that will keep you intrigued until the end.
Anna has been a faithful wife for three decades and a stay-at-home mom of four children.
She is finally about to divorce Edward, and get a new life after years of his marital infidelity, but she
halts her plans to care for him in their family home, the one she planned to sell, and use monies
from to move to France. This arrangement challenges Anna's sanity and destiny and helps her work
through the pain of her past.
“The House is about forgiveness--family members forgiving each other, showing how we do
that, and why it’s important to forgive others and ourselves,” Anjuelle says. “We all are seeking
atonement and redemption for something we regret having done.” Floyd believes The House offers
direction to readers who are “...aware of their mortality and are seeking to lay a foundation in this
present life for the life they will lead in the world to come." The House prompts people to think
about how they want to feel in their last moments of life, and what family legacy they want to leave.
