Imagine that your husband has two other wives.

You’ve never met the other wives. None of you know each other, and because of this unconventional arrangement, you can see your husband only one day a week. But you love him so much you don’t care. Or at least that’s what you’ve told yourself.

But one day, while you’re doing laundry, you find a scrap of paper in his pocket—an appointment reminder for a woman named Hannah, and you just know it’s another of the wives.

But you’ve never known him to be violent, ever.

Who exactly is your husband, and how far would you go to find the truth? Would you risk your own life?

And who is his mysterious third wife?

She’s wife number two and she’s more than happy in her role in the marriage. Yeah, there are times when she’s lonely, or needing her husband, but she knew what she was in for when she signed up. But did she really? Is there something that her husband is hiding from her and his other wives? There’s only one way for her to find out.

Thursday – yes, that’s actually her name, not just her day of the week – is wife number two in a polygamous arrangement with her husband, Seth. The problem is, she’s not allowed to know so much as the names of the other wives. So, after discovering what she believes is a clue to the third wife’s identity, Thursday engages in a bit of cyber-stalking until she finds her. This is where it all starts to get a little crazy.

I don’t know what I was expecting when I picked up this book, but I can honestly say that it was not what I wound up getting. The ending completely took me by surprise, I had not even entertained it as a possibility. Now, I can be a rather gullible reader, so that might have something to do with it, but I was completely stunned when I read the final pages.

The Wives was one of the most insane, engrossing books I’ve read all year. I have this weird fascination with polygamy and I’m not even sure where it came from. However, the idea of plural marriage is alluring and therefore, this book was a must read. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who loves a great psychological thriller packed with twists and turns you weren’t expecting. Although I don’t often re-read books, I’d love to read this one again, knowing the things that I know now, and wonder if it would change anything. I will definitely have to pick up more of the author’s books now.
