Four people. Three couples. Two sisters. One unforgivable betrayal.
That is the premise of author Laura Pearson’s second novel, Nobody’s Wife. Pearson follows up her stunningly beautiful 2018 debut book, Missing Pieces, with a completely different story about two sisters, Emily and Josephine, who have always shared everything. But change is inevitable. Emily has the perfect wedding. Josephine finds the perfect man. But they are utterly unprepared for what, or who, one of them is willing to give up for love.
I’m delighted to welcome Pearson back to Colloquium to discuss the anticipation of having a second novel published, particularly on the heels of the staggering success of her debut work, Missing Pieces.
Sending Your Second Novel into the World
There’s nothing quite like the mix of anxiety and excitement you feel when your first novel is published. Until, that is, your second one comes out. Second time around, it’s just as exciting and just as scary, too. But it is different in a number of ways, both good and bad.
