9780060512385: Secret Lives of Second Wives

Catherine Todd is back again with another witty tale about life's unexpected surprises

After more than a decade alone, fortyish attorney Lynn Bartlett was ready for something more than nights curled up with Jane Austen and a recalcitrant tomcat. So when the right man came along -- kind, clever Jack Hughes -- she said yes to his proposal. How hard could it be? Jack's children were grown, and the Bay Area -- with its insatiable demand for immigrant technological workers -- offered plentiful opportunities for opening a new immigration practice. Lynn had every expectation for a transition that would be if not seamless, at least without unexpected obstacles.

Welcome to the world of the second wife, where nothing turns out quite as expected. After all, Lynn never anticipated that her new husband's first wife would show up uninvited at the fiftieth birthday party she throws him. And there was nothing in the wedding vows about Jack's unemployed son moving in with them or his daughter's implacable resistance to every friendly overture. Nor did she count on finding one of her clients so unsettlingly attractive. Not even the Anne Boleyn Society -- an informal support group for second wives whose motto could be "I never thought it would be so hard" -- had all the answers. And when her partner in the boutique immigration law practice she is building resigns under suspicious circumstances, Lynn finds that her career and her marriage are in jeopardy.

Todd captures Lynn's journey from wryly unmarried to impossibly fettered with empathy and wit. Secret Lives of Second Wives is the story of finding the balance between honoring your commitments and being true to yourself.
