Even the perfect marriage has its dark side…
Iris and Will’s marriage is as close to perfect as it can be: a large house in a nice Atlanta neighborhood, rewarding careers and the excitement of trying for their first baby. But on the morning Will leaves for a business trip to Orlando, Iris’s happy world comes to an abrupt halt. Another plane headed for Seattle has crashed into a field, killing everyone on board, and according to the airline, Will was one of the passengers on this plane.
Grief-stricken and confused, Iris is convinced it all must be a huge misunderstanding. But as time passes and there is still no sign of Will, she reluctantly accepts that he is gone. Still, Iris needs answers. Why did Will lie about where he was going? What is in Seattle? And what else has he lied about? As Iris sets off on a desperate quest to find out what her husband was keeping from her, the answers she receives will shock her to her very core.
I’ve read this about a month ago, and have to admit, I have no recollection of it…
After checking my notes on it, now I remember why. I found the story quite intriguing, based on the book description. But I was not prepared to put up with such a useless main character! She spent most of the story whining and flopping around and making remarks how “but Will is in Orlando, he is supposed to, he said so”. Yes, thank you, Iris, we got it.
The big reveal at the end was not so great after all… I could see it coming from about 50% in.
This whole mystery surrounding the husband, why was he not where he was meant to be… hmm… I must say I don’t remember what the reason was.
