How to Be a Good Wife – Emma Chapman

I know what my husband would say: that I have too much time on my hands; that I need to keep myself busy.  That I need to take my medication.  Empty nest syndrome, he tells his friends at the pub, his mother.  He’s always said I have a vivid imagination

Marta and Hector have been married for a long time – so long that she finds it difficult to remember her life before him.  He has always taken care of her, and she has always done everything she can to be a good wife.

But when Hector comes home with a secret, their ordered domestic life begins to unravel.  In the shadows there is a blonde girl that only Marta can see.  And she is trying to tell her something…

On the surface the book is a highly competent, creepy little chiller, but beneath, like a silent, bolted and half-dark room, there’s a much bigger, equally disconcerting story about the nature of feminine experience.  It’s an accomplished debut from a writer who shows insight and emotional power.

Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies
