Across the county, a phone rings in a darkened bedroom, waking a pregnant woman. It's her husband. He wants her to know that he and his friend have gotten themselves into a little trouble. So Patty Dickerson's old life ends, and a strange new one begins.
At once a love story and a portrait of a woman discovering her own strength, The Good Wife follows Patty through the 28 years of her husband's incarceration as she raises her son, navigates a system that has no place for her, and braves the scorn of her community.

"This is a story of ordinary lives and small graces. O'Nan's refusal to dress things up (or down) is part of the charm of this clear-sighted, uncompromising novel." (Amazon.com)
I've been an Audible customer for over three years and I've listened to hundreds of books. This is my very first review. OMG, I'd have rather had my ear drums gouged out with a pencil. I only listened to it all to "get my moneys worth". That ain't ever going to happen with this listen. I cringe at having to give this even one star but it's required to complete a review.
