I Know Who Holds Tommorow: A Novel

1. lot has been said and published about the disintegration of the family. What do you think are the most important elements in staying happily married? Sexual compatibility? Financial success? Education? What?

2. Madison and Wes both had busy, high-profile careers and were often apart. Can a marriage survive if the couple spends a great deal of time away from each other? How?

3. In researching I Know Who Holds Tomorrow, I interviewed a lot of women to ask if, given the same circumstances Madison faced, they would take Manda. The majority said yes. Some even related they'd grown up in a blended family. Others emphatically said no way. What is your opinion? Why?

4. Zachary helped Wes because he loved him, and because he was his half-brother. Are there occasions when family members ask too much? Was this one of those times? Initially what would you have done in Zachary's place?

5. How do you feel about older men/younger women, and younger men/older woman being in a relationship? Can it work? Do you immediately rule out a person because of age?

6. People often show the side of them that is most flattering. Do your friends really know the real "you" or do they only see what you want them to see?

7. Who holds your tomorrows? Why?
