Praise for Mrs.

“Gwen Hogan and her husband, Dan, a U.S. attorney, do not fit in with the elite families at St. Timothy's preschool in Manhattan, where other mothers often mistake Gwen for a nanny at pick-up time. However, Gwen is not a total stranger to the other St. Tim's mothers. She knew Philippa Lye, for one, while they grew up in Massachusetts, back before Philippa's modeling career and her marriage to banker Jed Skinker.
In January, a new child joins the school, and her mother, Minnie Curtis, is set on befriending Philippa to further her own secret agenda. Soon Dan discovers a link between Philippa’s past and his current investigation into a criminal he couldn't prosecute years earlier. Macy (The Fundamentals of Play, 2000; Spoiled, 2009) creates a masterful portrait of marriage, ambition, betrayal, power, and secrets. She tells the stories of the Hogan, Skinker, and Curtis families from varied perspectives, building the tension to heartbreaking heights and grappling with the long-term ripples of trauma and characters' failures to one another throughout the complex and impossible-to-put-down novel. Readers will remember the three families long after the last pages.”
