I can not say enough that this is a great read, especially for the ladies!! Colorful, moving and electrifying, it invites deep introspection on many women's approach to creating, maintaining, and healing relationships with self, friends, family and men. The characters are so real and multi-dimensional that it becomes easy for each of us to see part of ourselves in the characters in this work of art.
Im eagerly anticipating more!!!
Full disclosure: I read and critiqued parts of the story while it was being developed.
Alternating between the first-person point of view of these three characters, this dramatic tale explores themes of love, betrayal, and self-decption. The depth of the author's understanding and portrayal of these characters' emotions is what gives the story its fire. So effective is the pacing and so fierce is the investment in what will happen to these three that the occasional typos hardly get in the way. A good editor could have helped improve this already very good story into one that is outstanding.
One of the stand-out achievements in this book is the way the characters's voices are handled. Each is strongly individual and uses vernacular appropriate to that character; I was never confused as to who was speaking.
Another achievement is the handling of the religious elements. Both Janine and Jon have a deep Christian faith; Jon is a deacon in their church and Janine's nonprofit is part of the church's ministry. Their interactions with Bishop Brown play an important role in their journey. However, these elements are embedded organically into the story, viewed through the characters' eyes. Their faith is simply one part of their complex and sometimes contradictory humanity.
Just in time for summer, The Wayward Wife is a great beach or hammock read.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a digital copy of this book free from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
