The Good WifeThe Good Wife by Stewart O'Nan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Patty is pregnant when she gets a phone call in the middle of the night from her husband Tommy saying he has been arrested for being at a house where there was a murder/robbery. This is an quiet book that shows over the next 28 years how Patty's life unfolds. This is a haunting novel about enduring. It felt long but, that was the point - to capture the ordinariness of her life and how this could happen to anyone. It makes you think "how would I cope in those circumstances?" I don't know if I would recommend this book but I enjoyed it and will definitely be reading more by O'Nan.
