    Excellent Book

    I stumbled upon this book in Barnes and Noble, and am happy I bought it. Very good storyline/plot and interesting topic. Once I picked up the book, it was very hard for me to put it down. The action moved very fast and the ending was superb. Great book.

    I loved this book!

    I'm usually not one for period style novels, but I came across a description of this book in the information I receive at the school I work at for Braille readers. It sounded interesting, so I decided to give it a try. Thank goodness I did, because I feel this will be a book I'll read over and over. I know this is a cliche, but I could not put the book down and when I had to I couldn't wait to get back to it. I became so close to the heroine that I felt a real kinship with her and I believe my eyes were opened a bit to the sometimes terribly hard lives some women had to live back in the 1800's. Bravo to Megan Chance for writing such an entertaining novel! I will certainly read more of her work!

    One of the best books!

    This was a story that really kept my interest. I read it almost all the way through without stopping and the ending held up and didn't falter like many of the books I have read lately. I recommend it highly.

    A page turner

    The book was so upsetting that I had to read the end while I was in the middle. I couldn't put the book down. It was well written, the characters so believable, and the story spellbinding.

    Great book!

    I was skeptical at first...I'd never heard of this book before. So pleasantly surprised as it turned out to be fantastic...interesting, thought provoking and a bonafide page-turner. I couldn't put it down! An added bonus, very interesting points of discussion for book club group. Highly recommend!

    Anyone who is a fan of Michel Faber's Crimson Petal and the White will love this book. I sure did! Great characters and story. Didn't want it to end!

    ECELLENT!

    A page turner to the end. Many twist and turns. A view of life and what was expected of women in the 1800s.

    If you enjoyed 'The Yellow Wallpaper'...

    A historical venture into the life of a high-society lady whose unreconciled desires manifest themselves in the so-called 'female hysteria' and 'reproductive ailments' so fashionably diagnosed in the day, 'An Inconvenient Wife' proves itself darker and sexier than its first impression, harboring a twist that is most unexpected. Although the wealthy protagonist's 'pains' feel annoyingly frivoulous and spoiled to the modern reader at first, Chance quickly wins you over by submerging you in a stifling- misogynistic society, by drawing you in with Lucy's rising empowerment and courage to stand up against both her oppressors and her liberator. If you are either fascinated by the prescriptions of victorian era crackpot-psychology, or simply a good period story fraught with rebellion and desire--this one is for you.
