Her husband, Anderson -- who has an undeniable history of adultery -- is once again preoccupied with something other than work. And thats not all. Natalie has to deal with her own spoiled mother, drug-addicted sister, man-crazy best friend, and her own children who are too young to take care of themselves.Natalie goes through three days of her life, desperately clinging to the only life she knows and supporting everyone who relies on her, all at once. Her husbands actions verge on the edge of abusive, and it is only a matter of time before Natalie discovers what has been drawing him further away from their love -- and the results will shock everyone.Her struggles are contrasted with flashbacks that help make sense of the present, showing her relationships as they had been, and as they might yet become again. Through it all, Natalie strives to be available for everyone, but is even her indomitable spirit up to the task? Playing With the Hand I Was Dealt is an insightful debut about a womans attempts to redefine normal in a life gone mad.
