The Wife

This novel, by Meg Wolitzer is excellent.  It hits all the right notes.  A strong commentary on feminism juxtaposed with wifely responsibilities leads us to understand the marriage of Joan and Joe Castleman.  An aspiring writer as a young woman, Joan sacrifices for Joe, who is consumed as a literary sensation.  Our story starts as the couple is in flight to Helsinki to win the prestigious literary award which is given each year.  Using flashback technique, Wolitzer spins a novel that leaves one questioning loyalty, honor, love and devotion. 

Thoroughly elnjoyed this book.
