Product Description

Product Description

“This is a moving story, well told and beautifully written.”
--Jeffrey Archer

In celebration of Jeffrey Archer’s latest short story collection, And Thereby Hangs a Tale, St. Martin’s Press sponsored the “Jeffrey Archer Presents” Short Story Competition.  #1 New York Times bestselling author and master of the short story Jeffrey Archer is known for the precise wit and timely revelations in his tales, and now with this short story competition he has had the opportunity to recognize those same outstanding gifts in winner Mark Trainer’s New Wife.

What if you woke up with a lifetime of memories but were unable to recognize the wife you shared so many of them with? That’s exactly what happens to Danny when his wife Eve comes down the steps one morning. Her hair, her mouth, her hands—everything—it’s all wrong. He’s certain it’s just not her. But then why is Danny the only one who doesn’t recognize this “new wife?”

Confused and more afraid than he’s willing to admit even to himself, Danny’s responsibilities as a husband to a woman he doesn’t know and father to a son with hidden problems force Danny to face a future that is only slightly less knowable than his past.

An intimate look at a man trying to hold his family together while he seems to be coming apart, Mark Trainer’s New Wife is a remarkable story brimming with insight and affection.

Its my mistake buying this book. I have no comments to add as there is neither a plot...The writer should read somebody like Somerset Maugham :)

3.0 out of 5 stars I was disappointed. 4 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jeffrey Archer is a great story teller.

This for me was too short, I like a story that I can get my teeth in to !

This was over even before I could see what he was getting at!

1.0 out of 5 stars What was this all about? 29 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like short stories with a nice twist in the tail and persevered through this one. I have to say that after I had finished it I thought "What on earth was that all about". The end made no sense at all and I was left totally frustrated and confused. Please, somebody,tell me what it was all about! I am just grateful that I didn't spend a lot of money on it.

2.0 out of 5 stars new wife 28 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book very difficult to follow plus the fact that it ended before I thought it should of. I love Jeffrey Archer books normaly, so was not surprised to read he only presented this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Jeffrey Archer! 28 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To be honest I felt rather cheated. I was expecting a Jeffrey Archer and got a shadow of the story teller. I would have probably enjoyed it more if I had not had such expectations. Come on Author stand by your own pen!

This book was ok but I would not be in a hurry to read it again as it had no staying power. In other words I could put it down and come back to read it simply because I can't start... Read more

Waste of money. Story had no point to it. Archer must have been having a very boring thirty minutes to have wasted his time on this piece of nonsense. Read more
