More About His Other Wife by Deborah Bedford
 
 
 
Overview
New York Times bestselling author Deborah Bedford sweeps readers into this compelling drama with her trademark style of beautiful, lyrical writing. Since her divorce from Eric, Hilary has done everything she can to control life for herself and her son. Beneath a calm surface, she is terrified of failing Seth. She's worked hard to raise him on her own, and she's succeeded--he's now set to graduate from high school and enroll at the University of Illinois with a full scholarship.
But Hilary's worst fears are realized when there is a rock-climbing accident at a post-graduation campout. A young girl is hurt, and Seth is arrested. Pamela, Eric's new wife and Seth's stepmother, blames Hilary for letting Scott go to the campout in the first place. With Seth's college scholarship now just a distant memory and his entire future at stake, the two women must come together for Seth's sake.
Is Hilary's love strong enough to save her son and release him to her ex-husband's other wife?

Bedford (Remember Me) examines the unresolved emotions behind divorce in this psychologically persuasive novel. Hilary is left by husband Eric for Pamela, and also left to raise their son, Seth. When Eric and Pam return for Seth's high school graduation with their own children in tow, the tension between Pam and Hilary is disconcertingly obvious. Bad gets worse when an unsanctioned graduation campout goes terribly wrong, and the adults are forced to get along in order to cope and respond. Bedford writes with skill and acuity. She also has a good feel for teenagers, who are part of the emotional center of this book. The Christian notes in the plot feel less organic and logical than the rest of the development, but the plot itself is based on the biblical story of Hannah in satisfyingly subtle ways. An edifying read. (Feb.)
