Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him.

But one day, she finds something. Something that tells a very different—and horrifying—story about the man she married.

My Review

If you’re a reader familiar with Tarryn Fisher’s books, you already know that nothing is what it seems when it comes to a story’s plot line and characters, and that what you perceive as the reality of certain situations that occur as the book progresses is anything but…perception isn’t always factual or honest, which is exactly why it’s extremely difficult to trust in your inferences about the story line because it’s not your story, for that matter, it’s not even the author’s story…it’s where the characters want and need to go that dictates how twisted and complex the journey is.

Seeing everything through Thursday’s eyes, one of Seth’s three wives, is what I found to be the biggest mindjolt. There’s truly no reason to doubt what she uncovers, how she reacts to that information, and the way everything unfolds due to the steps taken to resolve the position she finds herself in when her life implodes. 

What’s clear throughout this psychological thriller is that the world is not, and almost cannot be experienced/lived in only black and white, and this is more than scary because it’s an unpredictable, uncontrolled, and potentially unhinged gray area – a place where nothing is guaranteed and where fighting for what you want doesn’t mean you get it or perhaps, even deserve it.

Even though I have a number of Fisher’s book in my Kindle library, I had yet to dive into one, so the opportunity to read/review The Wives was exactly what I needed to be introduced to the way she crafts a story and how character-driven her storylines are…now, I just need to find the time to read her other books!
