“A woman’s greatest foe is sometimes her hope that she’s imagined it all. That she herself is crazy rather than the circumstances of her life. Funny the emotional responsibility a woman is willing to take on just to maintain an illusion..”
How far would you go to find the truth about your husband?
“Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him.
But one day, she finds something. Something that tells a very different—and horrifying—story about the man she married.”
It’s taken me a few weeks to be able to decide how I felt about The Wives as I was torn with feeling disturbed and intrigued by the storyline. From a personal standpoint, I can’t imagine being okay with Thursday’s situation as her husband visits her one day out of the week and even then it’s not a full 24 hours. But, hey, not place to pass judgment on lifestyles. It’s just my place to pass judgment on books.
I was intrigued by The Wives, I wanted to know more about the other two women that Thursday shared her husband with. Were they okay with the situation or were they even aware of the situation? I finished this book in a little over 24 hours as the chapters were fairly quick and the storyline held my attention.
While I did like the overall storyline, I was just a smidge disappointed in the ending. I’d like to think that the ending is up to interpretation but I’m not 100% sure about that opinion. I just felt like I wanted more out of this book. It was interesting but not one of my favorites!
If you’ve read this one, I would love to hear what you thought of it!
