Annette and Spicer have been happily married for ten years, but, lately, Spicer has been going through some unexpected changes. To Annette's dismay, he takes up astrology, pores over a book entitled "Cutting Free From Hurtful Ties," and refuses to listen to her. Spicer's analyst tells Annette that "he is leaving her and the material world." Eventually she realizes that her husband is just using her and she decides to strike back at him.
TROUBLE is a wonderfully funny novel about victimization, betrayal, and the triumph of a woman who finally gets even with the man who hurt her.
