Olivia Goldsmith, author of Switcheroo and other best-selling works, is hailed as the mistress of the modern revenge novel. Seasoning her tales with sharp wit and an eye for detail, she has been described by Newsweek as "Jane Austen dealing blackjack." In Young Wives, she moves the war between the sexes into the tidy streets of suburbia. Angela is a lawyer; Michelle, a pampered housewife. Jada is a professional African-American executive. But when their husbands stray, these three women watch their worlds dissolve. Threatened with losing their children, their incomes, and their pride, they combine resources to concoct a devastating plan. There is no fury like three women scorned. Goldsmith twines their tales together into a wonderful conspiracy that led critics to call this book "the perfect anti-Valentine's Day story." Through Alyssa Bresnahan's narration, the keen intelligence and humor of Goldsmith's work shines in every delicious scene.

Professional reviews

"This production is a marriage of storytellers. Olivia Goldsmith writes in detail of three women and their soon-to-be-estranged husbands. The crumbling relationships cause the women to lose their pride and places, and when they touch bottom, they hit back with the energy of Furies. The storyteller's mate is Alyssa Bresnahan, who keeps interested us through all the antics of our three heroines. Added to the pleasure of hearing her voice is her positive portrayal of all of the male voices. There is nothing gruff or scratchy about the sound. We get to make up our own minds about whom to hate. Every character is given a sympathetic portrayal, which makes the novel more valuable. J.P. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
