"The Glass Wives"

Amy Sue Nathan lives and writes near Chicago where she hosts the popular blog, Women's Fiction Writers. She has published articles in Huffington Post, Chicago Tribune and New York Times Online among many others. Nathan is the proud mom of a son and a daughter in college, and a willing servant to two rambunctious rescued dogs.

She applied the Page 69 Test to her new novel, The Glass Wives, and reported the following:
What a shock to turn to page 69, which is the last page of Chapter 5, and find the crux of The Glass Wives within the few lines printed there.
Beth reached into her pocket and pulled out her smartphone. “Let’s make a list of everything you need.”

Evie knew what she needed, and Beth wouldn’t find her at the grocery store.
This is a turning point in the novel—the actual premise itself—when Evie, the main character, cautiously agrees to share her home, and living expenses, with her ex-husband’s young widow and baby. It’s this admission, acceptance—this resignation, if you will—that leads Evie on the path to altering her own perception of what it means to be a family.

And that’s what The Glass Wives is all about.
