To escape the horror of a sadistic sexual assault that had left her with an illegitimate child and a shattered life before that life could begin, Emily has been living in a cabin at Arrowhead Point beside Lake Pend d’Oreille in northern Idaho. She had exiled herself there thirty years ago at age seventeen.
Harvey considers himself to be one of God’s chosen losers, as he had lost at everything he had truly wanted to win: the state high school football championship; his son; and his wife. The final blow was having been presented with an early retirement package and shown to the door. Aimless and defeated, he goes to see a piece of land he had won in a bouré game years before; the land is located at Arrowhead Point beside Lake Pend d’Oreille in northern Idaho.
Emily and Harvey meet; they clash; they become attracted to each other; but there are obstacles to overcome. Harvey discovers that there are two Emilies: Ewón and Etú. Ewón is the dominant personality, a passionate artist who has a well developed phobia of males. Etú is fun loving, flirtatious, and reckless, and has a mania for males. To Harvey’s dismay, Emily is Ewón for ninety percent of the time and Etú for the remaining ten percent. Other obstacles frustrate them: Emily is a modern, educated, self-reliant, independent woman; Harvey is a traditional man; Emily is a promising artist; Harvey is a former football player and downsized oilfield man; Emily is busy painting; Harvey has nothing to do. Ultimately, Harvey awakens to the realization that the only part of Emily that he can have is Etú, the part that is not an artist, and he sets to rearranging his life to fit into a ten percent marriage.
Ten Percent Marriage is the second book of The Sandpoint Trilogy by the author.
