The Glass Wives by Amy Sue Nathan

What would you do?

This would make a great book club question for a late-night discussion of The Glass Wives by Amy Sue Nathan. (St. Martin's Griffin, May, 2013).

What would you do if your ex-husband died, leaving you with two grieving children, but also a second wife and a new baby who come knocking, asking for your help? 

Before you give a quick magnanimous answer, what if the second wife is way younger than you, and by that I mean young enough to sport a tattoo? And what if she'd been your husband's mistress before your divorce?

It's getting complicated, isn't it? 

But yet, your children have a connection with their stepmom and the baby. They spend every other weekend together. You can't just slam the door in their face like you're  dying to.

It's a great premise for a book, isn't it? There's plenty more good stuff within the pages that you'll just have to discover for yourself. There are betrayals and discoveries, surprises and secrets. But most of all, it's a lovely story of unlikely friendships, forgiveness and what it means to be a  family. 

If you're interested, we hope you'll stop by The Bookstore on Thursday, May 30th at 7pm for a reading and book signing by Amy Sue Nathan. She's got her own interesting story behind the book that we think you'll love to hear. Please join us!
