Review: The Pilot's Wife



The Pilot's Wife by Anita Shreve

This is our library discussion book this month, and I've not read it before, though I've read other Shreve books (Sea Glass and Light on Snow).

I flew through this book in a day...not only is is well written and engaging, but it's sort of a cross of literary fiction and fast paced suspense. Kathryn knows that a pilot's wife should always expect the "knock on the door in the middle of the night", but when she receives it, she has no idea what lays in store for her family, her memory of her husband, or herself.

This is a great read, and Shreve is a great writer.
