Meri is newly married, pregnant, and standing on the cusp of her life as a wife and mother, recognizing with some terror the gap between reality and expectation. Delia—wife of the two-term liberal senator Tom Naughton—is Meri's new neighbor in the adjacent New England town house. Tom's chronic infidelity has been an open secret in Washington circles, but despite the complexity of their relationship, the bond between them remains strong. Soon Delia and Meri find themselves leading strangely parallel lives, as they both reckon with the contours and mysteries of marriage: one refined and abraded by years of complicated intimacy, the other barely begun. With precision and a rich vitality, Sue Miller—beloved and bestselling author of While I Was Gone—brings us a highly charged, superlative novel about marriage and forgiveness.

A moving story of secrets and discovery, The Senator’s Wife is a gripping tale of two love affairs spanning oceans and centuries—and the art inspired by each. In the 1940s, American artist Alistair Smith embarks on a fifteen-year affair with Elizabeth Calhoun, wife of Senator Teddy Calhoun. Along the way, he makes dozens of paintings and drawings of his mystery lover, taking the secret of her identity to his grave. Marie Barlowe is modern-day political royalty in Washington, DC … until the unthinkable happens. Her Senator husband leaves her for his mistress. She is lost, cut adrift from her old life, until a surprise gift from her best friend lands her in the orbit of one Luc Marchand—grandson of a famous painter and infuriatingly sexy Frenchman. Marie dives headlong into a journey of self-discovery. Then the unthinkable happens again. Her estranged husband calls off the divorce. Desperate to save her newfound freedom, Marie hatches a plan that ignites a high-stakes political scandal … and brings to light secrets from Luc’s past. In Paris, the two couples’ lives converge before a painting of Luc’s grandmother, in which she is wearing an emerald and diamond necklace that is identical to one worn by Elizabeth Calhoun in another, earlier painting. Can Luc and Marie avoid the sad fate of Alistair and Elizabeth’s doomed love? An engrossing, sexy novel that strolls the intimidating halls of power in Washington, the famed museums of Paris, and the gritty streets of Pittsburgh. The Senator’s Wife is at once a passionate romance, a tale of one woman’s journey to her truer self, and an ode to the seductive power and mystery of art.

Four unforgettable characters beckon you into this spellbinding new novel from Sue Miller, the author of 2008’s heralded best seller The Senator’s Wife. First among them is Wilhelmina—Billy—Gertz, small as a child, fiercely independent, powerfully committed to her work as a playwright. The story itself centers on The Lake Shore Limited—a play Billy has written about an imagined terrorist bombing of that train as it pulls into Union Station in Chicago, and about a man waiting to hear the fate of his estranged wife, who is traveling on it. Billy had waited in just such a way on 9/11 to hear whether her lover, Gus, was on one of the planes used in the attack. The novel moves from the snow-filled woods of Vermont to the rainy brick sidewalks of Boston as the lives of the other characters intersect and interweave with Billy’s: Leslie, Gus’s sister, still driven by grief years after her brother’s death; Rafe, the actor who rises to greatness in a performance inspired by a night of incandescent lovemaking; and Sam, a man irresistibly drawn to Billy after he sees the play that so clearly displays the terrible conflicts and ambivalence of her situation. How Billy has come to create the play out of these emotions, how it is then created anew on the stage, how the performance itself touches and changes the other characters’ lives—these form the thread that binds them all together and drives the novel compulsively forward. A powerful love story; a mesmerizing tale of entanglements, connections, and inconsolable losses; a marvelous reflection on the meaning of grace and the uses of sorrow, in life and in art: The Lake Shore Limited is Sue Miller at her dazzling best.
