This is my book review of “Family Pictures,” a novel by Jane green. Jane Green writes great women’s fiction novels, by the way.
“Maggie and Sylvie are perfect strangers. They are two very different women, living very different lives on opposite coasts. But they share more in common than they could ever imagine.
Married To The Same Man:
As you read about these two very different women, you may wonder how they were fooled.
The fact of the matter is, we can probably all be fooled.
Creditors and sheriffs come to take over their homes for foreclosure. Tow trucks show up to haul their vehicles away for non-payment.
What these very bright women shared, was the fact that they really knew nothing about their finances. He made sure of that. He told them not to worry, he was taking care of them.
Except he wasn’t.
A Common Criminal:
Finally they learn that he was picked up by the police in California. He was sitting in jail facing trial for his crimes, the money he had stolen from businesses that trusted him.
For all intents and purposes, he was a common thief. Just on a grand scale.
Both of these women would have sworn this would never happen to them. They knew their husband and had faith in him.
This is a novel that should teach us to know more about our finances, know where to find important documents and keep our eyes open.
