Image of The Glass Wives: A Novel

Nathan’s story is a poignant reflection of forgiveness and the complicated definition of family, strengthened by the intricate characters who are realistically balanced by their strengths and flaws. The novel’s pace is languid, but the plot and characters are heart-warming and the ending is inspiring and thought-provoking.

The tragic death of Richard Glass leaves behind two brokenhearted families — his ex-wife, Evie Glass, and their 10-year-old twins and his widow, Nicole Glass, and their 6-month-old son. Richard’s actions in life created a rift between Evie and Nicole, but his death brings them together in an unexpected way, resulting from Evie’s financial need and Nicole’s loneliness. As this unconventional family tries to rebuild their lives, mistrust and past issues threaten to damage the promising future they are working together to create. (ST.
