The Husbands

Chandler Baker

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

To what lengths would you go for just a little more help from your husband? By the author of 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.

Recently, Nora has started to feel that 'having it all' - a family, a soon-to-be new house, a successful career in law - comes with a price, one her husband doesn't seem to be paying quite so heavily. She loves Hayden, but why is it that, however hard men work, their wives always seem to work that much harder?

Then her house-hunting takes them to an affluent suburban neighbourhood and Nora's eyes are opened to a new world. One where women can have it all. One where the men actually pull their weight.

But a wrongful death case involving one of the local residents draws Nora further into this perfect world and she begins to realise that the secret of 'having it all' is far more complicated than she could ever have imagined. In fact, it may be worth killing for...

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.
