On the surface, it seems that Bev is living happily ever after. Her marriage to her high-school sweetheart is unconventional but suits her, and she has found success in her chosen profession.Appearances can be deceiving.This fourth novel in the Snowy Series is Bev's Book, told entirely from her point of view. It picks up where the third novel, Henrietta Snow, left off, with Bev's announcement that she and her husband, Roger, are going to renew their marriage vows. Bev and Roger have been living apart for twelve years. After the euphoria of their decision to get back together, Bev tries to face the reality of this prospect, while at the same time she must try to deal with career decisions and, even more important, a surprise with tremendous impact.The Husband Bench explores love in its various forms-pure and complicated, selfless and selfish, serious and comic.
