Theresa Miller - The Spin Doctor's Wife
The Spin Doctor's Wife
Megan is desperate for a baby, running hard on the IVF treadmill and heading for the edge. Meanwhile, her PR spin-doctor husband, Laurie is distracted by very different desires. Enter Carla, an ambitious young singer, who can give them both what they want—at a price.
For years, Megan was a much-loved schoolteacher but her world was upended when she was abruptly dismissed. She hopes having a baby will fill the void. Instead, her discovery that Laurie has secretly fathered a child with Carla, adds insult to injury. Finally, Megan devises a plan to take back control of her life.
How far will Megan, Laurie and Carla go to get what they want? When will they realise that it’s not what they want but what they need, that can set them free?
Set in Sydney against a backdrop of corporate cover-ups and the cult of celebrity, The Spin Doctor’s Wife is fast-paced, heartbreaking and funny.
