Write Review

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Your husband works hard, but so do you. From the powerhouse author of the New York Times bestseller WHISPER NETWORK comes a thrilling, insightful, page-turning novel imagining a world where family work is equally shared

Welcome to the neighbourhood. We do things differently here.

Nora Spangler is a successful lawyer but when it comes to domestic life, she's always the one doing more. She packs her daughter's lunches, schedules the doctor appointments, knows where the extra paper towel rolls are, and buys the birthday cards. Her husband, Hayden, works hard, too...but why is she always working so much harder?

The Spanglers go house-hunting in Dynasty Ranch, a nice suburban neighborhood where Nora meets a group of career women with enviably supportive husbands. When she agrees to help with a resident's gruesome wrongful death case after a big fire in the estate, she delves into the lives of the women there, becoming their friend.

But how have Penny, Thea, Cornelia and Alexis managed to transform their marriages? Even as she fears digging up the secrets at the heart of her own marriage, Nora is tantalized by the possibility of a life that's under control. But what is really going on at Dynasty Ranch? As the case unravels, Nora uncovers a plot that may explain the secret to having it all.

Smart, sharp, and timely, The Husbands imagines a world where the burden of the 'second shift' is equally shared - and what it might take to get there. If you love the novels of Liane Moriarty, Celeste Ng and Sally Hepworth you will devour The Husbands.
