FUN, FEARLESS, FABULOUS FEMALES!
MEET THE ‘REAL’ HOUSEWIVES OF NEW ENGLAND
Since the Real Housewives of Orange County made their network television debut, America has been enraptured by the fabulous, scandalous lives of wealthy men’s Botox-ed better halves across the country.
But it isn’t until now, with the September 27, 2012 release of Suzy Duffy’s Wellesley Wives [The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House], that the well-to-do’ers of New England finally get their shot at the glory.
Following the escapades of the fictional and fabulous Popsy Power – a pretty, popular and insanely rich Boston society wife, and her best friend, the uber-fit and massively spoiled Sandra – Wellesley Wives is a celebratory romp through the lives of women who have, lose, and ultimately triumph over it all.
While their opulent wardrobes, expensive cars and handsome husbands may at first glance appear as picture-perfect as the masterworks that hang on their walls, the cracks in their gilded surfaces don’t stay hidden for long. Life is incredibly good for these ladies who lunch – until it goes bad, and this is where Wellesley Wives begins.
Facing divorce, infidelity, financial loss and more, Popsy and the girls traipse through the affluent suburbs of Boston, the Irish countryside and Caribbean yachts, all the while negotiating the blows they’re dealt with laughter, extravagance and a resilience that every woman, regardless of social strata, will recognize as her own.
“When I moved to Boston from Dublin, I realized that women everywhere really are the same,” says Duffy, an Irish native who is already a #1 bestselling author in Europe. “We all get hit with problems through life – many of which we don’t see coming.
Wellesley Wives was written to make women laugh and forget about reality for a little while. It’s white wine without the calories!”
A joyful, life-affirming story that celebrates female fearlessness and intelligence, Wellesley Wives looks at:
* The importance of female friendship and solidarity: why life is easier when you have someone to laugh about the ups and downs with!
* The ‘problem-free’ lifestyles of affluent housewives: does money solve as many problems as one might think?
* Handling divorce, infidelity and family problems with grace
* Finding courage in the face of the unknown, taking risks, and following your heart!
