📙 Young Wives' Tales by Adele Parks, narrator Phil Hearne


0


Lucy stole her friend Rose's "happily ever after" because she wanted Rose's husband - and Lucy always gets what she wants. Big mistake.Rose was the ideal wife and is the ideal mother; Lucy was the perfect mistress. Rose doesn't have the vocabulary to describe Lucy. A devoted single mum, she fills her life with labeling school uniforms, organic vegetables, and car runs for extracurricular activities. She's an exemplary mother, but the boys seem to need her less and less, and without them, she wonders what she amounts to. Both Lucy and Rose envy Connie, who is happily married and is effortlessly balancing two kids with a fulfilling career - until a dangerous old flame flickers back into view at the school gates and threatens her marriage.All three of these women need more than blind belief to negotiate their way through modern life. Things can only get better...or worse. ©2007 Adele Parks; (P)2006 Orion Publishing Group Ltd
