The Doctor\'s Wife

The Doctor's Wife

(2004)
A novel by

 
From the outside, the Knowles family appeared to have it all - a loving marriage, two beautiful children, a home in an idyllic part of the countryside in upstate New York. Michael is a rising OB/GYN at a prominent private practice, his wife, Annie, teaches at a local college. But Annie's role as 'the doctor's wife' has worn thin, and Michael has answered the call of an old flame to moonlight at the local women's health center, the city's only provider of abortions.

These subtle cracks in their life widen when anonymous threats arrive at their home. The reason for this intimidation is not at all clear - is it, as seems to be the case, the work of religious extremists opposed to what Michael is doing? Or are these violent warnings meant for Annie? For she has made at least one certain enemy in town - Lydia Haas, the painter's wife, a disturbed young woman with a cellar full of her own dark secrets.

Told in the alternating viewpoints of Michael, Annie, Simon, and Lydia - four fascinating and complex characters - The Doctor's Wife is steeped in psychological suspense, compelling and compulsively readable.
