Review “THE WIVES” By Tarryn Fisher
“The Wives” follows our protagonist, who I’ll leave unnamed for the moment because I don’t want to give anything away. She’s Seth Ellington’s second wife. Which is fine. But he’s still with his first wife. And he has a third as well.
Seth is a polygamist, and that works for her. She doesn’t know the other wives. She lives in Seattle; they both live in Portland. She gets Seth 2 days a week, and all is well until she finds out about Hannah. The third wife. The one after her. Now, she has a name, and she has to put a face with the name. She becomes a woman obsessed, and even travels to Portland and strikes up an unlikely friendship with her. One day, Hannah shows up with finger mark bruises on her arm. Then, a black eye. She wonders: Is Seth hurting his other wives? In her quest for the truth, she finds out too much as she discovers Wife #1, another woman with a shocking similarity to violence.
This is a true psychological thriller, pulling you into the mind of a woman who thinks there’s no problem with the rotating wives, until she becomes jealous. The shocking ending proves that manipulation can have its setbacks. Especially if you don’t know you’re dealing with a monster.
