About the Book

My Review

Jonathan Sweetwater comes home early from work to discover that his wife may be having an affair. Instead of confronting her, he goes on a quest to discover more about his father, who was out of his life by the age of nine. His high profile Senator father had six wives before he died and Jonathan travels the world in search of them and what they can teach him about Percy Sweetwater.

Jonathan is a likable character. His journey seems more appropriate for a midlife crisis, though, rather than a response to thinking his wife may be having an affair. He went two weeks suspecting without ever confronting her about it. Seems a little unlikely, right? But despite that, I enjoyed meeting his father's wives and visiting Aspen, Chicago, London, and Nevis. 

So, did his wife have an affair? Guess you will have to read the book.

  1. I wonder if Jonathan was simply afraid of the answer he'd receive from his wife if he confronted her. Looks like I'll have to read this book to find out!

    Thanks for being a part of the tour.
