"The Glass Wives" by Amy Sue Nathan was a different kind of read for me but it was a good contemporary read about relationships and family. 

The story as on the back of the cover:

 “There’s no love lost between the ex and the widow.” No question this is an understatement. It’s been several years since Nicole Glass had an affair with, then married Evie Glass’s husband, Richard. Yet, after Richard’s death, Evie chooses to see past her animosity—partially for financial reasons but also for the sake of her 10-year-old twins and Nicole’s baby Luca—and invites Nicole to move into her home."
Now, how is this to work ...as you read you will see that his author 'handles this with honesty, humor and empathy.'   You will be drawn into it all.. 'from kitchen and food preparation to visits for memorable best friends and family time with Nicole and Evie's children.'   This author did a wonderful job at showing the lives of "The Glass Wives" which ended as a blended 'Glass Family.'  This novel was definitely one 'from friendship to marriage...to family relationships  to motherhood.'  I think I understood this novel a little more though reading.  This novel wasn't just about there last names but now they say themselves in each other.  This was a family not merely by blood but caught up into a situation where it can be friends, neighbor, strangers and in this situation.. ex's that were forced to redefine family after a life changing event.

This one was a thought provoking read that will leave you with some thoughts long after the read.  Would I recommend?  YES!
