Alice Buckle seems to have everything - a successful marriage, loving children and close friends.
But her growing doubts and fears start to be realised when she signs up for an online marriage survey, and her husband loses his job. Instead of speaking to the people she loves, Alice confides in her online researcher, and the intimacy and emotions that develop between them soon throw her whole world into question. Melanie Gideon cleverly looks at the way modern technology affects our interaction and relationships - how we often communicate better electronically at the expense of physical contact. Wife 22 is a light-hearted read, perfect for a holiday, with a serious message at its heart. It tantalisingly ends with the survey questions themselves.
