about

A pilot's wife is taught to be prepared for the late-night knock at the door. But when Kathryn Lyons receives word that a plan flown by her husband, Jack, has exploded near the coast of Ireland, she confronts the unfathomable-one startling revelation at a time. Soon drawn into a maelstrom of publicity fueled by rumors that Jack led a secret life, Kathryn sets out to learn who her husband really was, whatever that knowledge might cost. Her search propels this taut, impassioned novel as it movingly explores the question, How well can we ever really know another person?

From Our Editors

Kathryn Lyon has an ideal life. A pilot's wife, she's happy teaching in her New England town's - and her hometown's - high school. Her marriage is a loving one and her precocious 15-year-old daughter is a constant delight. But when a late-night knock at the door awakens Kathryn to the terrible news that her husband died in a plane crash, her world erupts. Pilot's Wife is a moving, engrossing novel about Kathryn's grief, the revelation that her husband had some disturbing secrets and the constant scrutiny of the media in the midst of her tragedy. Anita Shreve is the best-selling author of The Weight of Water.
