Book ~ "Yours, Faithfully" (2006) Sheila O'Flanagan

From Fantastic Fiction ~ lona's not pregnant. It's a blow but she knows that when husband, Frank, gets home he'll reassure. Sally, on the other hand, has just discovered that she's very much pregnant. Which is quite a surprise, with her only child now a seventeen-year-old who's not going to be pleased.

And Sally's not sure how her husband will react when he gets home. Except Frank's not going to get home - to either of his wives. Frank's bigamy of several years is about to be exposed because Frank was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now his wives are going to meet in the hospital where he lies in a coma. And everything is about to change for all of them ...

Interesting concept, eh?

It's the first book I've read by Irish author Sheila O'Flanagan and I enjoyed it.

It's 599 pages and we get to meet Iona and Sally (Frank's wives), Jenna (Sally and Frank's daughter) and Siobhán (the cop investigating the situation).

I enjoyed the writing style and I liked the characters.

Does Frank come of out the coma? If he does, who does he choose? You'll just have to read it to find out!

Sounds interesting.

A good friend of my mother-in-law found out her husband had a second household once he passed away. Talk about being punched in the face when you should be mourning your loss.

I also had a client who had the same thing happen to her once her hubs died of a masive heart attack around the age of 40.

It sounds interesting and like a Plot Line for "ALL MY CHILDREN" or "GENERAL HOSPITAL"....(Some American Soap Operas on TV...)
