Set against the turbulent background of the 1790s, this novel blends excerpts from over 100 letters and other 18th-century documents with speculation to create an engaging tale of four real historical figures--two Supreme Court Justices (James Iredell and James Wilson) and their respective wives. Told from the points of view of the two women, the fictional narrative of A More Obedient Wife fleshes out the bare bones of the historical record, bringing its long-dead characters to vivid life and centering on timeless themes of love, friendship, and betrayal.

"A More Obedient Wife" Reading Natalie Wexler's novel provided me with that wonderful experience of being so riveted, so engaged, so caught in the tale being spun that I literally could not put the book down. Travel back in time and meet her remarkable (and very real) characters. You won't be disappointed.
