" The memory starts here, in my apron pocket, with the gun. " So begins The Doctor s Wife, a stunning debut novel about four people and the cataclysmic intersection of their lives. Michael is a rising OB/GYN at a prominent private practice in Albany, New York; he also moonlights at a local women s health clinic. But Annie, his wife, has become tired of her workaholic husband s absences, and the soccer-mom lifestyle has worn thin. She begins a passionate love affair with bad-boy, fading celebrity painter Simon Haas an affair that quickly goes awry when Simon s wife Lydia, who is also the model upon whom he built his career, discovers the truth.Abortion, local evangelism, marital disenchantment, and the rifts of social class: Brundage takes on the fault lines of our era with a deft hand."

Another 5 Star literary thriller from Elizabeth Brundage. I love the cover and how houses have great presence in her books. Houses and art and relationships , beautiful writing, thriller and horror , characters that are nuanced … yes I‘m a fan !

Tamra It‘s so fun to have an auto buy/read author! Stacked. 2mo

LeahBergen I really must give this author a try. 👍 2mo

Cathythoughts @Megabooks Me too. I hope she is busy writing ! 2mo
BkClubCare I just read about a book written as a conversation between a house and a painting 🖼 hanging in house! Your comment about liking old houses reminds me. I need to add the title to my list before I forget. 😆 2mo

he woke early , before dawn and went walking in the long grass behind the house. He liked to witness the rising sun and the wailing geese crossing the red sky. . He moved slowly through the day , observing the various details of their life in the house. The way the cream fell from the pitcher … he said her hands reminded him of birds.. the sun crawling across the table..the light attracted him as much as the darkness

I love her writing 👌

BarbaraBB Great quote. I couldn‘t resist any longer and bought a copy too 🙀 2mo
Cathythoughts @BarbaraBB Look forward to your thoughts 👍 2mo
LeahBergen Lovely. And I‘ve had “wailing geese” around here lately, too! 2mo
Cathythoughts @LeahBergen if they are migratory maybe they came from here .. I‘m not sure about their habits 🤔😁 2mo

If you like literary thrillers you MUST start reading Brundage! It‘s hard to believe this is a debut.

It has a captivating start as a doctor is beaten, drugged, and driven off the side of a road. But he is “saved” from death by a twisted woman. Then it goes back several months to show how they got to the opening chapter. (A device I love!) I found the doctor‘s wife to be the least interesting character, but there other very compelling ones! ⬇️

Megabooks ⬆️ Here‘s an excellent later read by her (edited) 2mo
Megabooks @vivastory have you read her? I think you‘d enjoy this or the one tagged ⬆️ 2mo
vivastory I have not read her, but I also love the device of opening with the crime & working backwards! This sounds fantastic. Stacked! 2mo

Megabooks @BarbaraBB for sure! I definitely think you‘d enjoy it. 2mo
Megabooks @DogMomIrene I love the cover too. I miss covers like this. The book is 2005. I just don‘t care for all the new ones. 2mo
BarbaraBB I so agree about today‘s covers! They often seem so childish! 2mo
TrishB @BarbaraBB @Megabooks I‘m enjoying it so far 👍🏻 2mo

Megabooks @Cathythoughts I‘m reading quickly and am somewhere around 250 now. Is it bad that I find Annie the least interesting character of the bunch?? I‘m wondering how it will get back to the beginning. 🤔🤔 2mo
Cathythoughts Ya , there is something I‘m not getting about Annie. I agree with you there … I‘ve had a busy busy week , so I haven‘t progressed much further, but I‘m looking forward to getting back to it. 2mo
Megabooks @Cathythoughts I hope you‘re able to get some reading time in this weekend. How is your granddaughter? I‘m sure she‘s keeping you busy! 💜💜 2mo
Cathythoughts Yes! Granddaughter is lovely and she is keeping me on my toes .. 👍🥰 2mo
