The Senator’s Wife by Sue Miller

A young woman and her husband move to the house next to that of an older woman who’s still married to but no longer living with her philandering husband, the senator. A friendship develops between the women even if the younger one never understands the older one’s tolerance and love for her husband after all he put her through (and frankly we can’t understand it either; surely great sex cannot be enough!) The Senator’s Wife gives us an engaging story but one we can’t quite believe. Disappointing.
