by Karma Brown

In this captivating dual narrative novel, a modern-day woman finds inspiration in hidden notes left by her home’s previous owner, a quintessential 1950s housewife.

As she discovers remarkable parallels between this woman’s life and her own, it causes her to question the foundation of her own relationship with her husband--and what it means to be a wife fighting for her place in a patriarchal society.  

'A bold, intoxicating, page-turner. Karma Brown has long been a favorite of mine' Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six

'A brilliant, brooding, timely novel, fraught with tension, that packs a punch. Brown knows how to keep readers riveted until the very last page.' Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl

'Brown’s vivid storytelling deftly explores the joys and limitations of the role of wife – a wonderful read.' Fiona Davis, international bestselling author of The Chelsea Girls
