“The memory starts here, in my apron pocket, with the gun.”    

So begins The Doctor’s Wife, a stunning debut novel about four people and the cataclysmic intersection of their lives. Michael is a rising OB/GYN at a prominent private practice in Albany, New York; he also moonlights at a local women’s health clinic. But Annie, his wife, has become tired of her workaholic husband’s absences, and the soccer-mom lifestyle has worn thin. She begins a passionate love affair with bad-boy, fading celebrity painter Simon Haas—an affair that quickly goes awry when Simon’s wife Lydia, who is also the model upon whom he built his career, discovers the truth. 

Abortion, local evangelism, marital disenchantment, and the rifts of social class:  Brundage takes on the fault lines of our era with a deft hand.

    " i read some reviews about this book that made me hesitant to start it. but i did anyway and i absolutely loved it. i liked the fact that it pushes the limit on humanity, morale, religion, and standing up for what you believe in. this book is about an OB/GYN who volunteers at an abortion clinic to help a friend. he knows there will be pro-life activists but he has no idea that theft, guns, bombs, affairs, kidnapping, drugs, sex, lies, and murder would all be entailed. dr. knowles tries to stand up for his beliefs while keeping his family safe and his marriage intact which proves harder than he thought. overall a very real and chilling read that you won't want to put down.

    " I really liked this book. True, I could have easily done without all the sex and cursing, but as far as a thriller...excellent. I love Ms. Brundage's writing. There was a particular scene where the mistress and the wife encounter eachother and I felt like I was there. My husband said something to me and it made me jump...literally back into reality. Not for the faint of heart if you can't handle the more "grown up" scenes or the numerous (much too) explitives. If all that had been left out or taken down a bit, it would have gotten a 5 star from me. Nicely done Elizabeth. "

    " I get involved in stories explaining why the characters act as they do. This psychological thriller did just that. The ending seemed a bit contrived. "
