His father suffered from madness, and Michael is terrified that he will inherit the same affliction. He scrutinizes his every mood swing, his every expression, to see if he can detect any signs that he is developing the symptoms.

Anne picked up her hat and gloves before going to ascertain that Danielle and Sarah were settled in the garden with Miss Caxton. She paused at the gate to survey the pocket garden, as Sarah called. Although the vine-covered stone walls gave it the appearance of intimacy, the area held a small pond, meandering stone paths winding in a seemingly haphazard fashion, and several apple trees just coming into bud. The girls were seated by the pond today; Danielle curled up on a blanket laid out beside Sarah’s chair and Miss Caxton on a nearby bench.

An Inconvenient Wife book. I really have absolutely no idea why this books is called 'An Inconvenient Wife' when they don't marry in the book!!! This book was just a mess. I have no clue about Stephan's character because he was all over the place.

I ordered Megan Chance's An Inconvenient Wife from Amazon on impulse. I tend to love books about the "upper classes" in Victorian New York. I love Edith Wharton and gobbled up Caleb Carr's two books (The Alienist and The Angel of Darkness) on that period with relish. E.L. Doctrow's Ragtime: A Novel is still one of my favorite books. So when I read the description of An Inconvenient Wife it sounded like my kind of book. It arrived Thursday at 4, I finished it last night at midnight.

I won't say it was a great book comparable to Doctrow, Carr and, of course, Wharton. It didn't have their scope but it was a darn entertaining read and, quite frankly, even though I suspected what might happen next, it was filled with surprises. In fact the last paragraph of the book is still on my mind --- did she really mean what I think she meant?

The story in brief is this: Lucy, descended from a very upper class, prestigious, old NY Money family is married to William, a nice enough young social climber who is certainly respectable but far beneath her status. Lucy is prone to "incidents", she has failed to conceive, numbs herself with laudanum, is too outspoken in social situations, and generally embarrasses her socially-conscious husband. Her husband takes her from one doctor to another hoping to cure her embarrassing (to him) behavior. Eventually he hears about the controversial neurologist Victor Seth who treats patients using hypnotherapy. At first it seems Dr. Seth is something of a miracle worker --- until everything gets very confusing. That's as much as I'll tell you, I don't want to spoil the story.

The most disturbing aspect of the story is just how powerless women of that era were. Their fathers and husbands had total control over every aspect of their lives. How these poor women endured the social pressures of the time is a mystery to me. On the surface they were glittering, pampered jewels but underneath the illusion was a life that was so regimented, controlled and proscribed it was little better than a prison. Lucy is intelligent, talented and, above all, passionate --- all of which embarrass her husband. The scenes when she is confined to an asylum are disturbing but even more disturbing is her husband's reaction when she attempts to introduce some passion into their intimate life. "I thought you were a lady," he tells her as he backs away.

It is never productive to judge the behaviors of characters in one era by the standards of a different era. I've read reviews of this book that express incredulity at the way various characters acted but within the context of the times, they seem perfectly believable to me. The writing style is clean, quick, efficient and highly readable. I'm a reader who gets annoyed when the writing style gets in the way of the story. That is never a problem in this book.

Ultimately, when the story is told and the book is closed there are still a lot of haunting questions. Is this what Dr. Seth really intended? Did he create a monster or did he bite off more than he could chew? How much was a product of science and how much of desire? And, above all, how much influence did he really have? Who used whom? I liked this book. I'll be thinking about it for awhile and that is something I appreciate writers for. Well done.

** spoiler alert **

I liked this book a lot but wish the author took more time to develop the ending. I liked Lucy's changes, as she went from a hysterical woman to one who wanted to be free, but thought toward the end (after the asylum scenes) I needed to see her will more so the last line of the book wasn't so out there. I do believe her character underwent a huge change and was almost ready to be "free" but at the same time, one doesn't go from being coddled and bossed around to being a leader either.

I liked what the author did with William's character and how she showed what society really thought of him. I also liked the doubt that the author placed in the mind of the reader regarding what happened during the ball at William and Lucy's new home. (do not want to spoil!! But whose idea was it? Lucy or Victor?)

I was interested to see how the author turned Lucy from a shaking-scared-unsure person into this sexual being who couldn't get enough of a certain someone. Is that really what women of the late 19th century were repressing? If you repress sexual desires, you become hysterical? (and the treatment Victor first used on Lucy also shocked me! It's like he used one big vibrator on her!)

The book showed that being apart of high society had it's price for both men and women. It also showed prejudice runs across all classes- I liked when Victor told Lucy about his background in the tenements. I didn't realize until reading this book that passion was a bad thing (as is open-mouth kissing!) and men will do anything to feel superior to women. The treatments at Beechwood really bothered me, that was terrible, yet written in so much detail.

The Gilded Age in NYC may have been good for some, but this story showed that high society, while glamorous, was very constricting.

I found the book to be almost compulsively readable, a good piece of historical fiction. It's disturbing to see the intricate details of how suffocating it must have been for women--especially women of class and wealth--who didn't "toe the line", who didn't suppress their true feelings and passions in order to be a "proper" wife, an obedient and pliable wife, a socially appropriate and well-behaved wife whose purpose in life was to enhance the life & reputation of her husband. It's hard in 2014 for us to imagine a life in which writing poetry or sketching pictures of your garden was considered obsessive behavior which had to be stopped at all costs.

The book is a page turner, especially the last 75-100 pages; I found myself racing to the conclusion after thinking I'd figured out what really happened to Lucy in the culminating event of her "illness." This is one I can definitely recommend!

About five years ago, a friend reecommended this read. I finally got around to it and it was fascinating.

The story focuses on Lucy, a wealthy young New York and Newport socialite. Lucy does not fit the mold. Her father believes so and the man that is placed in her path, by her father, to eventually become her husband become dictators in her everyday existence.

Ultimately Lucy has issues...'fits' and disturbances. This behavior leads her husband to take her to a number of doctors, eventually finding one. The Svengali like doctor enters her life and becomes pivotal.

How Lucy reacts and eventually meets her fate is cause for scrutiny and reading between the lines.

In the end, who is the victor, who is perhaps insane or not?

You be the judge!
