THE GOOD WIFE STRIKES BACK by ELIZABETH BUCHAN
When Viking published Elizabeth Buchan's New York Times
bestseller Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman, American women
saw themselves mirrored in its pages with unique empathy,
sophistication, and storytelling flair. It was more than a
finely written and irresistible read. It opened up the
unsuspected vista of a newer, better than ever phase of
life waiting for them. The same readers—and many more,
because the word about Buchan has gotten out—will devour
The Good Wife Strikes Back.
Forty-eight-year-old Fanny Savage has a nineteen-year
record—earned with patience, devotion, and contentment—as
the perfect wife to an ambitious, idealistic politician.
Life is a whirlwind of public engagements and unquestioning
loyalty to the party, to keeping up appearances, and to her
husband. Her job description is to look good and remain
silent whatever the cost. But as much as she loves her
husband and their teenage daughter, Fanny senses within
herself a creeping restlessness. Increasingly she feels the
fragility of happiness and the part of her she had buried—
as the brilliant partner in her father's Italian winery—
begins to resurface. She has given two decades of her life
to being the Good Wife—was it worth it, after all? Could it
be time for a trip back to Italy? Could it be time
for . . . a change?
