NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay uses her emotional, gut wrenching writing and her vast experience as a high school teacher to create a plot which tackles passion, romance, a sexual predator, infidelity and the enduring power of love.
Nick and Callie Muscato have been lovers since high school. They married at eighteen and Callie gave up Vassar to go on the road with Nick as he builds his major league baseball career. Once he becomes a superstar, their perfect life is marred by their inability to have children. And then a miracle happens and they adopt twin boys.
Eventually Nick is forced to give up his baseball career, gets his college degree and when the story opens, both he and Callie are teaching at their Alma Mater. Then tragedy strikes them with two major blows: Callie confesses she’s pregnant with another man’s child and, only an hour later, Nick is accused of sexual misconduct with a female student. He is suspended from teaching until hearings can be held.
Though this stress might split up a lesser couple, Nick and Callie fight the accusation and try to keep their marriage together.

Reader Reviews of A PRICE WORTH PAYING:
“I started the book well after midnight...almost didn't sleep... and woke only to continue reading and finished it out in one fell swoop.”
“It was so refreshing to read a book about an imperfect couple who have been married a long time with big problems in their relationship but a determination to save the marriage.”
“Overall a good read. Subject matter was very serious, but done very well. It also had enough of a mystery going on that it keeps the reader engaged.”
“This has been by far one of the best books I have read in a while!”
