The War of the Wives
Or: imagine being happily married for 17 years. You have a young daughter, a lovely home and a husband who travels a lot - but you really love each other.
Then one day you get a call that turns your world upside down: your husband is dead. You are devastated. You go to the funeral... And come face to face with his other widow.
Another wife, another family. They never knew you existed, you never knew they existed. It can't be true. It must be a mistake.It has to be her fault - all of it. Or: is it?
With the sharp and witty scalpel she used in The Mistress's Revenge, Tamar Cohen again eviscerates so-called normal family life.As the two women are forced to re-evaluate everything they thought they knew, will they discover who is really to blame?
