The Pocket Wife
"Manic depression, the doctors said—the great magical force that turned on her and tricked her into thinking she could fly. Episodic, they said." ~ pg. 25
Dana Catrell lives a life of chaos. Her husband makes her feel like loose change in his pocket. When Dana is in a mania phase, part of her bipolar disorder, she finds there are holes in her memory. So what really happened on the afternoon of her friend/neighbor Celia's death? Was it murder or all in her head? Dana uses the clarity the mania brings to fill in the terrifying gaps in her memory in this thrilling debut novel.
The Pocket Wife is a 3Ms story: marriage, murder and madness. This novel is a good blend of psychological suspense and behavior told from the point of a view of a woman with bipolar disorder.
