Wife 22 Summary

Wife 22 by Melanie Gideon

If you like Modern Family, you'll love this

A successful marriage is like growing a temperamental plant - you have to work hard and tend to it carefully, as Alice Buckle is just discovering.

Despite her husband, two children and straight-talking best friend, Alice suddenly feels lost. Is it just that she's turning the age her mother was when she lost her? Or is it that she and her husband seem to have run out of things to say to each other?

Help comes in an unexpected form. When Alice starts unburdening herself to a complete stranger online, she starts to see things in a new light. Freed by the anonymity - she is known only as Wife 22 - she suddenly remembers all the reasons she fell in love with her husband in the first place.

But in the course of baring all, is Alice risking losing everything she once held so dear?

`Clever and original...witty and profound. Hugely enjoyable with a controversial ending.' Red

`A wonderfully clever, sad and funny read.' Daily Mail

`A juicy story of love, sex, parentlng, ageing and everything in between with a load of originality thrown in. Great stuff.' Closer
