Overview

"This is a moving story, well told and beautifully written."
--Jeffrey Archer

In celebration of Jeffrey Archer's latest short story collection, And Thereby Hangs a Tale, St. Martin's Press sponsored the "Jeffrey Archer Presents" Short Story Competition. #1 New York Times bestselling author and master of the short story Jeffrey Archer is known for the precise wit and timely revelations in his tales, and now with this short story competition he has had the opportunity to recognize those same outstanding gifts in winner Mark Trainer's New Wife.

What if you woke up with a lifetime of memories but were unable to recognize the wife you shared so many of them with? That's exactly what happens to Danny when his wife Eve comes down the steps one morning. Her hair, her mouth, her hands—everything—it's all wrong. He's certain it's just not her. But then why is Danny the only one who doesn't recognize this "new wife?"

Confused and more afraid than he's willing to admit even to himself, Danny's responsibilities as a husband to a woman he doesn't know and father to a son with hidden problems force Danny to face a future that is only slightly less knowable than his past.

An intimate look at a man trying to hold his family together while he seems to be coming apart, Mark Trainer's New Wife is a remarkable story brimming with insight and affection.

Even for 99 cents, this book wasn't very good. The ending left a lot to be desired.

20 pages??!!!!! I guess I should have read the whole review before purchasing. What a waste of time!
