Step into a very public marriage, in the compulsive novel from the bestselling author of Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman

Fanny Savage was once dutiful, clever, vulnerable and dreamy.

Now married to Will, a successful politician with big ambitions, her life is a whirlwind of public engagements and loyalty to the party, a position that requires her to look good and remain silent.

But she's no fool. She's well aware that the world outside her home is one that seethes with despair, danger and division. And she's beginning to understand how fragile happiness can be.

Is she coping with the transition from eager bride to politician's wife?

Has she been the Good Wife?



Does being good always mean being truthful?
