The review of this Book prepared by Heather

Shreve deftly portrays the grief and confusion felt by a widow who learns of her late husband's bigamy. The plot moves gently, sadly, allowing Kathryn's various feelings of anger, guilt, and betrayal to come forth for examination, but what stays with me, above all else, is the understated and lovely romance that is present from the start between the grieving wife and the chief investigator. Their affection is subtle but real, and warms up what is otherwise a haunting, devastating tale.

How much do you really know about those closest to you? That is the theme of this book which tells the story of the wife of an airline pilot who discovers an entirely different life that her husband has been living after he is killed in an airplane explosion. She decides to find out for herself who her husband really was and uncovers things she wishes she had never had to find out.
