Synopses & Reviews

From Powells.com:

Katherine answers a late night knock at the door and is greeted by news that her husband has been killed in a plane crash. Later she is informed that his flight bag contained the bomb. With sympathy and convincing style, Anita Shreve (The Weight of Water, Resistance) leads readers first through grief and loss, then through the immeasurable anguish and inner turmoil experienced by a woman who finds that her husband of 16 years is not at all the man she thought she knew. Readers are caught in Katherine's emotional maelstrom as rumors, ongoing investigations, and personal desires fuel her search for the truth. Shreve's exploration of feeling provides for an absorbing emotional tale. Martin, Powells.com

Publisher Comments:

Until now, Kathryn Lyons's life has been peaceful if unextraordinary: a satisfying job teaching high school in the New England mill town of her childhood; a picture-perfect home by the ocean; a precocious, independent-minded fifteen-year-old daughter; and a happy marriage whose occasional dull passages she attributes to the unavoidable deadening of time. As a pilot's wife, Kathryn has learned to expect both intense exhilaration and long periods alone - but nothing has prepared her for the late-night knock that lets her know her husband has died in a crash. As Kathryn struggles with her grief, she descends into a maelstrom of publicity stirred up by the modern hunger for the details of tragedy. Even before the plane is located in waters off the Irish coast, the relentless scrutiny of her husband's life begins to bring a bizarre personal mystery into focus. Could there be any truth to the increasingly disturbing rumors that he had a secret life?
