Jane Green’s bestselling novels are rich with wry, clever insights into the romantic lives of her idiosyncratic heroines, winning them a devoted fan base. Now, with The Other Woman, Viking will reintroduce America to the inimitable Jane Green.
If opposites attract, Ellie and Dan are perfect for each other. She’s impulsive; he follows all the rules. Ellie is a virtual orphan, whereas Dan’s family is as close-knit as they come. At first, Ellie is thrilled to be accepted into the Cooper clan and embraces Dan’s mom, Linda, as the mother she never had—until she begins to realize that Linda’s "mothering" is far more intrusive than even the best daughter-in-law can handle. What can Dan and his mother possibly have to talk about on the phone twice a day? And how has the intimate civil ceremony Ellie always dreamed of turned into a black-tie affair that would rival a royal wedding? Suddenly, Ellie finds herself wondering if it’s possible to get an annulment—from Linda.
A hilarious yet touching look at mothers-in-law and what they teach us about ourselves, The Other Woman is a brilliant hit from a novelist whose star just continues to rise.

Jane Green is one of the preeminent names in women’s fiction.From AudioFile:
Yet again Green ventures into the world of family relationships--this time between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. In fact, the mother-in-law is the eponymous "other woman" who plagues each of the characters in the marriages Green brings to life. Ellie marries Dan, whose mother, Linda, wants to plan every aspect of their lives, from the marriage to the baby's room. The other marriages depicted are no less uncomfortable. Josephine Bailey brings these situations to life in quiet tones with inflections that run from stoic to frustrated to angry. While Bailey's narration is superb, Green's story is not for the faint of heart or the shaky relationship. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
