The Wife's Tale

By Lori Lansens

On the eve of their Silver Anniversary, Mary Gooch is waiting for her husband Jimmy to come home. As night turns to day, it becomes clear to Mary that he is gone. Through the years, disappointment and worry have brought Mary's life to a standstill, and she has let her world shrink to the path from the bedroom to the refrigerator. But her husband's disappearance startles her out it and she begins a desperate search. For the first time in her life, she boards a plane and flies across the country to find her lost husband. So used to hiding from the world, Mary finds that in the bright sun and broad vistas of California, she is forced to look up from the pavement. And what she finds fills her with inner strength she's never felt before.

Despite my best efforts, I could not get into this book. It’s just not my kind.
