Carmen wishes Jobe, the husband she never loved, dead--only to fall in love with him after he is gone.

As she helps her three children grieve, she discovers, after a tryst with her most recent lover, that her own life may be in danger. Her emotions reeling, Carmen reflects on the fateful days of her youth that made her the person she has become: privileged suburban wife, unfaithful widow, mother of a child with Down syndrome, fierce friend.

The Forever Marriage is a compelling examination of a relationship and of a woman facing up to her imperfect past. It merits comparison to the best work of Anne Tyler, Elizabeth Berg, and Alice Sebold.

"Bauer and The Forever Marriage poignantly and powerfully illustrate the great and often tragic ironies of life." --Minneapolis Star Tribune
