display_description Mary Gooch was once young and slender and carefree. But with each passing year she's accumulated an excess of pounds and worries. When, on the eve of her 25th wedding anniversary, her handsome husband Jimmy does not come home, Mary wonders whether her size or her aversion to adventure chased him off. With few clues, Mary boards a plane for the first time in her life, venturing to California in search of her husband. What she discovers is as shocking as it is delightful: a new vibrant energy—and an entirely different kind of hunger.
In THE WIFE'S TALE, Lori Lansens brings us another riveting outsider perspective in a powerful story of craving and fulfillment.
