The Second Wife Summary


The Second Wife by Elizabeth Buchan

The Second Wife is the compelling novel from bestselling author Elizabeth Buchan.

What happens when the mistress gets her man?

Against the odds, that's what happened to Minty. She stole her best friend Rose's husband Nathan and made him her own. But now that she's got what she wanted - marriage, kids, a family home - she's discovering a few things she didn't bargain on: the cold shoulder from Nathan's other family, her husband's middle age and growing distance...and accepting that first wives don't just go away.

What's more, age brings one or two other problems for Minty. Problems that will lead her back to the one person she really doesn't want to face...

The Second Wife is a compelling and heart-warming novel from bestselling author Elizabeth Buchan.
