It makes you think twice about men!!
Another great read by Anita Shreve!
As the wife of an airline pilot, Kathryn Lyons understands the importance of being prepared for every eventuality that life presents to her. That includes everything from moving fairly frequently; to long periods of separation due to her husband's flight schedule; to the inevitable late-night knock at the door that every pilot's wife dreads. Yet when Kathryn receives such a knock: carrying word that the plane flown by her husband, Jack, has exploded somewhere off the coast of Ireland, she must confront the unfathomable - one startling revelation at a time.
Soon drawn into a maelstrom of publicity fueled by the persistent rumors that Jack had led a secret double life, Kathryn sets out to discover the truth. She is determined to learn just who her husband really was, whatever that knowledge might cost herself and her fifteen-year-old daughter. Her exhaustive search for the truth is what propels this taut and impassioned novel as it poignantly explores the question: just how well can we ever really know a person?
I must say that I absolutely loved this book. It was such an easy read for me; truly a page-turner. I've had this book on my bookshelf for quite a long time, but I can't remember if I have ever read it before. I think that I remember watching the made-for-television movie that was broadcast in 2002, starring Christine Lahti. I would definitely give this book an A+!
Loved this book, could feel the characters emotions.
Loved this book and could not put it down!
A great thriller about a plane crash, it's causes & the effects left on those still here.
Even though I knew what was going to happen in this story, I couldn't put this book down.
Good character development, well written. Makes you think "Just how well do I REALLY know anyone?"
EXCELLENT book... I truly enjoyed it...
This is a great story whic keeps you guessing till the end. Even though a movie has been made nothing can capture or evoke the emotions that this novel can, Barbara Delinsky is just great!
awesome story; rather sad, but ends on a hopeful note.
Oprah's book club selection. Interesting twist.
a haunting book that has stayed with me long after I closed the cover!
This was a great mystery! Another great read by Anita Shreve!
Read this a second time recently and loved it still.
A widow discovers her husband had a secret life and this deals with the aftermath of a tragedy that leads her to his other family.
Quick, engrossing read, a great first half, but I wasn't crazy about the ending, but overall it's a good book.
Good story with unexpected twists.
This book had good flashbacks and characterization, and was easy to read. It's about Kathryn, whose husband is an intercontinental pilot. He dies in an airline crash, then rumors start that it was suicide. She begins to investigate and begins to doubt how well she knew her husband.
Excellent story about a pilot's wife who, after her husband's plane crashes, finds herself asking how well she actually knew him.
