The Pilot's Wife (1998) by Anita Shreve

Friday, March 25, 2011
Synopsis: A wife learns that her pilot husband has been killed along with the people on his plane. Several mysteries surround the death & the place of the crash. As the plot unfolds other issues arise that help the wife learn her husband was not what he seemed.
Since I have only recently come back to my love for books (after a very long absence), I am reading books from all different time periods. This is book is from 1998 and was my first novel by Anita Shreve. The plot was good and at the beginning I was compelled, but by the middle of the book, I almost gave up. For me, reading a Shreve novel is an exercise in patience. The pacing is slow, but ultimately if you can hang in there, she offers a rewarding read. That being said, I don't know if I'd buy another one of her books.
