Sadie Drew thinks she must be the world's worst wife. She only needs to walk into a room to make it untidy. She wears flannel pyjamas in bed. Furry things breed in her fridge. But she's a busy working mother not a wifebot and husband Tom loves her as she is. Until he gets a hot new job and things change. There are alpha-wives to entertain. Nuclear rows. Unsettling secrets. And the smell of another woman's perfume on his suit. Sadie risks losing everything if she can't transform herself into the perfect wife... But what is a perfect wife anyway?Her silver hair is pulled off her face by a large red silk scarf, fixed with a jewelled beetle brooch. ... When I look up at the ceiling I start at the sight of one of the biggest chandeliers Ia#39;ve ever seen, like a million clustered teardrops. ... I got to know every drop and shimmer, the exact slant of the dust on the largest upper drops, the route of the wires that ran between the candle bulbs and up into the ceiling rose.
