This is a MUST-READ Novel…Check back Friday for Kathleen’s interview and Giveaway…The winner will be able to choose ONE Of her books to be sent to them 🙂 GREAT GIVEAWAY…I highly recommend this one:
Till death do us part…
Eleanor Anderson has a beautiful home, a loving husband, a tranquil life. After thirty-eight years of marriage and her children now grown, she finally has time for herself. She’s not expecting any surprises; certainly not to wake up one morning and find her husband dead in bed beside her from a massive heart attack. It’s a devastating discovery… but not as much as the shock awaiting Eleanor when she learns the truth about her husband’s secret life. And then there’s the damaging document he signed before his death, which threatens to destroy her life.
Claire Anderson isn’t your average thirtysomething. A professor of psychology at a prestigious university, Claire has a successful career, a handsome husband, and two young children at home. But nothing in her background, including her academic accomplishments, prepares Claire for the horrendous reality of discovering that the life she’d led was all a lie… fostered by a husband who’d promised to love and cherish her forever.
Two women from two generations, bound together by denial, anger, and grief. How far will their misery and fear push them? Does compassion rule the day, or will a husband’s betrayal lead to a woman’s revenge?
What happens when each of these women comes face-to-face with the other wife?
This Women’s Fiction Family Life novel deals with women’s fiction romance, as well as women’s fiction adult issues.
Kathleen Irene Paterka is a brilliant writer. Her use of the English language is brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, not only because of the storyline, but because Paterka told it so beautifully.
I don’t know which is worse, finding your husband has died of a massive heart attack next to you in bed, finding out that your husband left all of his Life Insurance money to another woman, OR that the woman is also his wife.
Eleanor was married to Richard Anderson for 38 years, they have two adult children together, a home….a life. Richard let on that his work took him overseas to the Middle East, when in fact he was just going a few towns over to be with his other wife and family. Four years before his death, he married Claire Anderson, and they had two toddler age children together.
This is the story of them finding out about one another and how they deal with the fall out of this information about the man they both loved.
Brilliant!!!! You will not be able to choose a side.
