First-time author Carol Ross Joynt's book, Innocent Spouse, is a contribution to strengthening sisterhood through the written word. A memoir like this speaks directly to you, Reader, in a more vivid voice than a novel.
Of the many memoirs by women who don't know their husbands until they die, none has the brutal irony of Innocent Spouse. Joynt knows what the peg of the story is -- how did a smart woman become so dumb? -- and she confronts it head-on.
