Throughout the month of October, in honor of National Reading Group Month, we're offering 12 e-books by authors we've interviewed together on Book Club Girl on Air for just $2.99 from every place you buy e-books! Which means that you can get a year's worth of books for your book club for less than $36! For those of you who aren't familiar with the 12 books, I wanted to take the opportunity, over the next few weeks, to feature each of the 12 titles and authors to help you decide which book, or books, are right for your book club!
It was a fairy tale come true when Mark Dorn—handsome pilot, widower, tragic father of three—chose Jiselle to be his wife. The other flight attendants were jealous: She could quit now, leaving behind the million daily irritations of the job. (Since the outbreak of the Phoenix flu, passengers had become even more difficult and nervous, and a life of constant travel had grown harder.) She could move into Mark Dorn's precious log cabin and help him raise his three beautiful children.
But fairy tales aren't like marriage. Or motherhood. With Mark almost always gone, Jiselle finds herself alone, and lonely. She suspects that Mark's daughters hate her. And the Phoenix flu, which Jiselle had thought of as a passing hysteria (when she had thought of it at all), well . . . it turns out that the Phoenix flu will change everything for Jiselle, for her new family, and for the life she thought she had chosen.
From critically acclaimed author Laura Kasischke comes a novel of married life, motherhood, and the choices we must make when we have no choices left.
