Book Review:The Wives Tale by Lori Lansens

This books setting was in Canada about an hour east of Detroit.  What I enjoyed was the mention of the sports team, Tiger and Red Wings that the characters were fans of. 
This book was about a woman who had been married for 25 years.  They were having a little anniversary party get together with their friends and the husband never came home.  The woman was hugely overweight and they had not had an intimate marriage for at least 6 years.  The woman worked part time, had a mother in the nursing home, loved her husband fiercely but had many, many hang-ups and sadness.  She is in her 40's and it is an awakening for her when her husband doesn't come home.  It follows her trail of her search for her husband and herself.  She discovers herself after all those years and realizes what she has been missing. She lost weight because she wasn't hungry anymore, meets new, interesting and very nice people on her trip to California. 
It was an immensely enjoyable book.
