The Man I Thought You Were

Leah Mercer

An RNA Romantic Novel of the Year Award nominee.

One fine autumn evening, Anna returns home to cook for her husband, Mark. It’s just like any other day in their ten-year, Pinterest-perfect marriage – until he says he’s leaving her.

Discovering that the man she thought she knew better than anyone else is capable of abandoning it all sends Anna reeling. She believed that the life they’d built together – and the bright future they’d imagined – counted for everything. How can he walk away?

Mark is battling with secrets of his own – secrets Anna knows nothing about. A painful past and an uncertain future threaten to bring his life down around him, and he’ll do anything not to expose her to that.

But unravelling the past is lonelier than Mark could ever have imagined, and as the days turn to months, Anna worries the distance will break them forever. Can she bring him back from the brink of self-destruction before it’s too late, or did she ever really know him at all?
