The Glass Wives (Paperback) by Amy Sue Nathan
about this item
Evie and Nicole Glass share a last name. They also share a husband. Well, to be clear, Richard was Evie?s ex-husband, so that makes Nicole his second wife. Only now she?s his widow. A tragic car accident ended the life of Richard Glass. It also upended the lives of Evie and Nicole, and their children: Evie?s 10 year-old twins, Sophie & Sam, and Nicole?s 6-month-old baby, Luca. There?s no love lost between the ex and the widow. And in fact, Evie sees a silver lining in all this heartache?the chance to rid herself of Nicole once and for all. But she wasn?t counting on her children and their bond with their baby brother, and she wasn?t counting on Nicole?s desperate need to hang on to the threads of family, no matter how frayed.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, they say. And what happens next is living proof of the desperate state of these Glass wives. Evie and Nicole, both emotionally and financially spent by Richard?s death, agree to share living expenses?and Evie?s house. The arrangement, purely financial in Evie?s mind, has its benefits, such as a live-in babysitter. But when Evie suspects that Nicole is determined to rearrange more than her kitchen, she has to decide who she can trust. More than that, she has to decide what makes a family.
