Author Cate Holahan Answers One Question about ‘The Widower’s Wife’

in Fiction by

The opening lines to Cate Holahan’s The Widower’s Wife (Crooked Lane Books, August 9, 2016) solidified my perpetual refusal to go on a cruise ship. Her newest thriller follows the investigation of a young wife gone missing on a cruise and she just so happens to have a lofty inheritance. Ryan Monahan, a character I’m dying for Holahan to feature in future work, is on the case to find out what happened to Ana Bacon. Her follow-up to her debut novel, Dark Turns, took me on a weaving narrative to the aftermath and the events leading up to the mysterious woman’s disappearance. Perspective is reality, as the tired, ever-relevant saying goes. For the One Question and Answer series, I asked her about the…

Review: Fall in Love with Emma Donoghue’s ‘The Wonder’

in Fiction by

“Lib wrote down, 1:13 p.m., 1 tsp. water. Not that quantity mattered, she supposed, except that she wanted to be able to give a full account of anything the child ingested on her watch.” For fans of historic classics such as The Kite Runner and Angela’s Ashes, The Wonder (Little, Brown & Company, September 20, 2016) will have you on a suspicious journey of religion and ethics. Warning: You may want to add this book to the top of your reading list. To say Emma Donoghue has a way with words is an understatement. For those who have read her heart-stopping novel, Room, you understand exactly what I’m talking about. The way Donoghue captures the voice of 5-year-old Jack is reflected perfectly in…
