The Third Wife Summary

The Third Wife by Lisa Jewell

London 2011: In the early hours of a summer morning, a young woman is killed by a bus. A tragic accident? Or suicide? A year later, her devastated husband, Adrian Wolfe, is determined to find out. Adrian and Maya had only recently married, and he'd always believed they were happy together. His children from his two previous marriages loved her. And Maya loved them. She had a job she enjoyed, she had plenty of friends, and she and Adrian were trying for a baby. They seemed to have the perfect life. Why then might she have wanted to kill herself? When Adrian finds a hidden stash of poisonous emails on Maya's laptop he begins to identify the dark cracks in her life. Because everyone has secrets. And secrets have consequences. Some of which can be devastating.

The Third Wife Reviews

"An emotionally intelligent, brilliantly plotted and beautifully written examination of a very modern family that will keep you gripped until the end." * Daily Mail, Books of the Year *
"Something of a moral fable about modern relationships, this is a smart and enjoyable story" * Sunday Mirror *
"A moving read from one of our fave authors" * Fabulous Mag, Sun on Sunday *
"The narrative dips back and forth with various points of view from stunningly drawn characters and I devoured it in one long sitting. Take this to the beach, or indeed anywhere - I promise you won't regret it." * Daily Mail *
"Prepare to totally forget about your family as you become immersed in someone else's." * Stellar Magazine *

About Lisa Jewell

Lisa Jewell had always planned to write her first book when she was fifty. In fact she wrote it when she was twenty-seven and had just been made redundant from her job as a secretary. Inspired by Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, she wrote the first three chapters of what was to become her first novel, Ralph's Party. It went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 1998. Fifteen bestselling novels later, she lives in London with her husband and their two daughters. Lisa writes every day in a local cafe where she can drink coffee, people-watch and, without access to the internet, actually get some work done . . .
