Every area of Sadie’s life has been marred in some way. Her husband isn’t as devoted as he seems, her oldest child is in serious trouble at school, and a mistake at work nearly costs Sadie her career as a doctor. Moving to Maine was supposed to be a new beginning for them all. Instead, it only makes things worse. Just when Sadie doesn’t think anything else could go wrong, a brutal murder happens just a few houses down the street. Even more shocking, the police think Sadie has something to do with the crime. Will Sadie be able to prove her innocence, or is the culprit closer than she imagines?

Sadie’s situation is so sad. The more I read, the more I discovered just how many problems were plaguing Sadie and her family. Ms. Kubica chose to tell this story from multiple viewpoints. I found this intriguing as each character has something important to add to the plot. Each chapter peels back another layer, revealing the roots of the problems bit by bit. I will say that this format did slow the pacing down. Since the chapters alternates between the perspective of several of the main characters, I needed to re-adjust my mindset with each change. I interpret chapters from Sadie’s perspective much differently than those from the perspective of Camille, the woman Will has an affair with, or Mouse, a young girl whose true identity isn’t revealed until the novel’s conclusion.

The nature of the subject matter also made it more difficult to get through this book. This book contains a lot of heavy material including violence and child abuse. As I read, the weight of it all pressed on me, and I needed to set the book aside from time to time before picking it up again. Readers sensitive to this material are forewarned.

The conclusion of this novel is mostly satisfying. I think some of the twists are a little hard to swallow. However, I was able to set aside my disbelief, especially since many of the characters are well on their way to finding some semblance of happiness by the end.

Overall, I think The Other Mrs. is a good book. I recommend it to readers who enjoy a slower paced suspense.
