Elizabeth Edwards – and, for the first time, daughter Cate – are opening up about John Edwards’s infidelity and the breakup of the marriage.

In PEOPLE’s edition next week, Cate, 28, who lives in Washington and clerks for a federal judge, and her mother talk candidly about their relationships with John now, Elizabeth s cancer and other issues.

“There are the things she taught without words,” Cate writes about her mother in a bonus essay for PEOPLE. Like, “how to continue to live your life on your own terms when it somehow becomes savaged by people you never invited into it.”
