Pitlor applied the Page 69 Test to The Daylight Marriage, her second novel, and reported the following:
Page 69 gives the reader a good sense of the mounting tension within The Daylight Marriage. In this novel, a husband and wife get into a painful argument, and the next morning, she disappears. On page 69 the husband, Lovell, is talking to his wife Hannah's friend to see what the woman might know about Hannah’s disappearance. Sophie, the friend, ends up knowing more than he thought she would. The reader is on the same footing as Lovell—surprised by what Sophie knows. This page is almost all dialogue-- and dialogue is important in the book. Quite a lot is revealed or hidden in dialogue throughout.Visit Heidi Pitlor's website.
