Things can always get worse.
That was the lesson Chrissy Caldwell had learned over the past year. Not
all at once, of course. This was the type of lesson that was learned in stages.
When she found out her husband had been having an affair, it crushed
When her husband told her he was leaving her for his twenty-one-yearold assistant, she thought, this is it. This is as bad as it’s going to get.
When her husband drained their bank accounts, moved out of the country,
and hid his assets in off-shore banks so that he wouldn’t have to pay her child
support or alimony, even though they had been married for sixteen years and
she’d been a stay-at-home mom, she thought okay, okay this is it. This is rock
But two months ago, when she learned that the home she’d owned for all
of those sixteen years, where she’d brought each one of her babies home to
from the hospital, where they’d taken their first steps, got their first teeth, and
learned to ride their bikes in the front yard, was being foreclosed by the bank;
it felt like a nightmare she couldn’t wake up from.

This was the house where her oldest, Fiona, had gotten her head stuck in
the spindles of the stairs when she was five.
Her second oldest and only son Connor had jumped off the roof and
broken his arm when he was eight after watching Superman and thinking he
Her third in line, Cassidy, ran into the back sliding door chasing a
butterfly when she was four, resulting in a goose egg on her forehead that
was featured in her kindergarten school pictures taken the next day.
It was where her youngest, Kimber, had decided to surf down the stairs
and ended up with four stitches.
This house was filled with memories, and they weren’t all of injuries;
those were just what came to mind as she looked around at the empty rooms
—the empty walls. There’d been so many holidays, and birthday parties and
every milestone of her kids’ lives had been lived in this house.
