Tessa and Mack have dealt with their daughter's death in a tragic accident in two entirely different ways. Losing a child is a blow from which many marriages can't recover. What did each of them do that was helpful? What was not helpful? Could you empathize more with one's reactions to grief than the other's?
Mack is so desperate for human contact that he almost makes a mistake that could cost him his marriage. In this context, were you able to understand his lapse?
Tessa's desire for revenge is so strong that it almost costs her what's left of her family. Could you imagine yourself in her position? Could you have found a better way to make peace with Robert's part in her daughter's death?
