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

in Fiction by

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…
