Wife 22 is a great book about family dynamic which gives readers the picture perfect family with the perfect marriage.
Well at least that’s how everyone around the Buckle’s sees their lives and for a very long time Alice and Peter sees their lives as perfect as well.
Thing starts changing though Peter loses his job and begins to change his whole purpose in life. Alice feels lost and doesn’t know where she belongs or what to do with herself. This book takes you into the heart of a family that has so much love and passion. However, the marriage has hit a rough patch and is having a heck of a time coming back from it.
Alice begins to feel like her world is unraveling and turns to an unexpected confidante, whom her best friend strongly disagrees with. She feels like she has nowhere to turn and she doesn’t know how to come back to where she used to be. Whether it is a mid-life crisis or common stress, she can’t figure it out but she feels like Peter her husband is going through the same thing. Both are drifting further and further apart and the waves just won’t stop.
I loved the characters depth in this book. It really brought a new meaning to true love for me. It was refreshing to read about a rough patch and a couple still determined to make it work because they really do love each other. It was beautifully written, captivating, and meaningful. You really don’t get that anymore with all the romance novels out there today. This i real and has real heart in it. I recommend it to all those romantics at heart. I give it five stars!
