Overview



The novel from bestselling author Lisa Alther—now available as an ebook
 
 
Caroline is a giver—as an ER nurse, as devoted lover to her partner, Diane, as a divorced mother of two boys, and as the daughter of world-class do-gooders—but can she accept help from others and still be herself?
 
 
When trauma cases in the ER leave Caroline emotionally paralyzed and her relationship with her partner, Diane, breaks down, she knows its time to take a look at her life and do something she’d never imagined: go to therapy. Her therapist, Hannah, knows a thing or two about sacrifice and pain. A former war bride, Hannah may live a seemingly cozy domestic life with her beloved husband and two grown children, but she can’t forget her own harrowing past. As she and Caroline work together, each comes to understand and admire the resilient woman sitting before her.
 
A poignant look at the human need for acceptance, Other Women is a thoughtful novel about how a life examined is worth living.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lisa Alther, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Editorial Reviews

Vogue Magazine
Lisa Alther is atruly gifted writter with an exceptional ability to create character. --11/94
Jane Futcher
Alther's genius as a novelist is her ability to capture and juxtapose the odd combinations of personality, gender, class, culture, family life and chance that shape human destinies.... Artfully counterpointing the feelings of client and therapist, Alther demonstrates the terror and comfort generated by the psychotherapeutic process.... Her analysis of the failure of Caroline's relationship gone sour.... Alther, like the fictional character of Caroline, has grown and developed as a novelist. By deep relationship, rather than creating a complex universe of characters, she has produced an important and satisfying novel about the human psyche. -- San Francisco Chronicle, 10/28/84
Baltimore Sun
A trumph! Witty, acute, and compassionate.... Alther has great emotional range. She can give you the hush of New Hampshire woods in the winter. She can get a sad smile out of you, [and] she can make you laugh. -- Baltimore Sun, 11/11/84
Mother Jones
Rich, multi-dimensional, and thoroughly involving.... Lisa Alther takes a quantum leap forward. -- Mother Jones, 12/84
