Summary
A compelling and haunting exploration of the secrets and shadows that can be hidden within a marriage from the New York Times bestselling author of Before and Again.

The easy harmony that exists between three close-knit couples on a charming cul-de-sac in suburban Connecticut is shattered when a beautiful young woman, widowed and unattached, reveals she is pregnant.

Rumors and questions begin spreading about the potential father. One by one, the couples turn inward, taking stock of their marriages and discover weaknesses they had previously ignored. As each wife struggles with this sudden crisis, they discover that they are being forced into making a decision—one that could result in either the strengthening or the dissolution of her marriage.

An ingenious portrait of suspicion and deception, faith and love, Barbara Delinsky’s “adept and compelling exploration of the inner workings of the modern upper-class American family makes for one of her best books” (Booklist).

Very well written. The story kept me interested all the way thru.

This novel seemed to be overly obsessive with one subject, and had little variety to create some anticipation for the listener. I was disappointed

This book was very good. I guess I related to a lot of the main character's problems and I found myself putting myself in her place a few years back. It was very enjoyable

Just wish it was unabridged. I prefer that format. I love Barbara Delinsky, though, all of her books are always excellent.

Not a bad listen but have listened to/read better. Would not rent it again

Good for small-minded people. Makes no sense. The whole mystery is who fathered some woman's baby. Who cares?

A suburban bodice-ripper: Knotts Landing meets Barbara Cartland. If you find the subject of infertility within a Catholic family to be an interesting story structure, then you are in for a treat. Submitted by Gem Spector

The Woman Next Door was an interesting romance novel. The characters were well developed but at time the plot was a little slow. I found the characters easy to identify with. Overall this was a nice book to listen to if you like romance novels with a little mystery in them. The plot kept you guessing until the very end!

I enjoyed this book but thought it moved a little slow. The narrator was good and the characters were quite real.

Very well written and read. This mystery has you wondering until the very end. The characters and the story line are very lifelike and one can relate to the women who live in this suburb.
