The Pilot's Wife by Anita Shreve

Very light-weight, easy to read Mills and Boon type crossed with a sort of thriller.
Plot highly implausible but raises an interesting point about how a spouse may not 'know' their partner even after about fifteen years of 'domestic bliss'.
Following the destruction of an American airline in the Irish Sea, the pilot's wife who seems to be a bad communicator sucks it all in with a stiff upper lip. Suspicions begin to arise that just maybe he might have had a second life and the second half of the book attempts to strain one's incredulity.  Just amazed that this book got so many reviews on Amazon -- apparently it was an Ophrah Bookclub selection - now what was SHE thinking?
