Mary and Jacob Jerrs have the perfect life. They have been married for nearly twenty-five years and are the envy of the little town of Trenton, New York. All the girls wish they were with Jacob, and all the boys wish they were with Mary, but Mary and Jacob have their wish and are holding their vows and each other above all else.
Anyone who says clean, good living goes unpunished does not know the truth because what is about to happen to Jacob and Mary Jerrs, along with three other families of Trenton, is pulse pounding, heartbreaking, and an absolute tragedy. With Jacob unable to communicate and defend himself, Mary must now take on the role of protector and provider. A tragic accident has left many dead, and Mary’s husband, Jacob, has become severely handicapped. Mary tries to hold her life together as the walls of her home crumble around her. The one man who loved Mary unconditionally, the one man who did all for Mary—her husband Jacob—has been stolen from her. Can Mary hold her life together as all the secrets Jacob held locked up for Mary come out? Can Mary survive financially with the loss of Jacob’s substantial pay? Can Mary exist without the physical love Jacob gave her? Can Mary go on, having lost her prince? Only time will tell in this dramatic love story. One Second Can Change Your Life is the love story you can’t miss.
