Book Review -- The Pilot's Wife

I just finished reading "The Pilot's Wife" by Anita Shreve. I've been a fan of Anita Shreve ever since my husband introduced me to her via "Where or When". (Can I mention here how much I LOVE that my husband reads a lot?)


As with most of Anita Shreve's book, the heroine is a quietly tragic figure. Shreve's way with words is great, but oh how I wish one day that the main character would just reach out and SLAP the heck out of someone -- in this book, particularly when she meets the second wife. But then, it wouldn't be an Anita Shreve book if that happened.


But it would be immensely satisfying.

    I loved that book, too, Lori...seems like I've read others of hers as well. Good choice!
