9780061766091: A Lost Wife's Tale: A Novel

“Suspenseful and gripping.”

Sunday Telegraph (UK)

 

A woman abandons her past—and the best friend with whom she was once inseparable—in Marion McGilvary’s startling novel, A Lost Wife’s Tale. A riveting story of love, betrayal, and living in a strange city under the shadow of an impossible choice, this provocative novel is certain to inspire strong emotions and heated discussions—not unlike The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, We Need to Talk About Kevin, and other novels known for their “talkability.” Already highly acclaimed in Great Britain, the American edition of A Lost Wife’s Tale is set in New York City—and author McGilvary brilliant captures Manhattan’s unique color and atmosphere for a U.S. audience.

From the Back Cover:

Once Edith Lutz had a life, a husband, and a home. Why did she run?

Edith doesn't want to be found, so she's taken on a new look, a new name, and an anonymous new life in New York City. Hoping to escape her past and start over, she's now working as a live-in housekeeper for wealthy, recently divorced publisher Adam. Edith is a breath of fresh air in her lonely employer's empty home, and she soon becomes more than just the woman who cleans the kitchen. But Adam knows nothing of the real woman he's falling in love with—or just how shaky the foundations of their blossoming relationship truly are. And Edith can never be sure that her dark history won't catch up to her. In fact, it's closer than she thinks.
