Mrs. Kimble Reviews
"The novel has sharply incisive passages, but Haigh's thin characterizations don't quite live up to the promise of the clever, intricate premise." - Publishers Weekly.
"Starred Review. The women are both weak and strong in their own ways, and the ending proves that Kimble may have done some good in spite of himself. A beautiful novel with memorable, vibrant characters that will have wide appeal." - Booklist.
"Jennifer Haigh's Mrs. Kimble focuses a laser on that most irrational of decisions - whom to marry... Though the premise seems overly schematic, the result is an affecting tale of the power of a charismatic predator and the acquiescence of his victims.... Haigh is spare and low-key, masterful at delineating the quiet but revealing moment... Mrs. Kimble can be enjoyed as a sharply observed study of three women and the same stubborn, misplaced hopes that shape their lives.

Three wives, all three are different. Ken Kimble marries these ladies for different reasons and also leaves them. One he leaves with children and the other one he doesn't.
Despite his leaving they manage to carry on their lives.
You want to hate him, but you can't....the story is well told. I love the cover with the three dresses that are depicting the three women.
Not sure which woman I like the best, but you will love the book....it kept your interest. Gifted author.
