Betrayal is quintessential Fern Michaels; it explores the emotionally-fraught relationships between two copules – one with children, one without. Kate and Alex have a strong marriage and a lovely home.
Don and Debbie are their good friends; and the couple has two girls: Sarah and Emily. Everything changes with one phone call… Sarah accuses Alex of sexual assault, and a vicious rift occurs between the two couples.
Kate watches helplessly as her innocent husband is convicted of rape and sent to prison; but then her grief turns to anger…Fern Michaels’ style! With a steel-edged resolve to clear her husband’s good name, and ruin those who have destroyed their lives; Kate sets out to take revenge on the family who were once her closest friends.
