Mrs. Fletcher: A Novel

We rated this book:

$26.00

Eve is in her mid-forties and facing a very blank page in her life. Her husband left some years before, and now her only child, her son Brendan, is about to leave for college. The nest will be very empty, indeed. Eve needs to find ways to fill her time outside of work and fill the empty well she has become. She receives a text from an unknown number that sets her on a path that could have disastrous consequences. What goes on with Eve and some very interesting other characters may make readers want to look away, but that’s impossible. This is a riveting story.

Author Tom Perrotta has a way of creating characters and situations that are very real and most fascinating while commenting on societal issues in pretty meaningful ways. The point of view in this book is kind of a moving target, with some being in first-person, some in close third-person, and some as omniscient narrator, yet that never intrudes in the reading of this very smart, very funny story. If you are embarrassed about laughing out loud in public while reading, this might not be the book for you. It’s flat-out funny.
