Marriage Vows | General Fiction
It’s Jordi Gordan’s 55th birthday and she receives, as she has for every birthday for the last fifteen years, a message from Nico. While her husband, Hal, cooks her a birthday breakfast, she cries over her message from Nico – because Jordi is a woman with a secret.
As evening approaches, she puts Nico to the back of her mind and readies herself for her guests. The dinner party is a success and the atmosphere is laid back and casual. Then, while she is taking a break from the table, Jordi overhears two of her guests talking about her. Back at the table she confronts the women in an amiable kind of a way, but it becomes clear that something is not quite right.
The conversation grinds to a halt before Moira, Jordi’s poisonous sister-in-law, blurts out a shocking truth.
