    The Wifes Tale ePUB Ä The WifesPDF EPUB or wifes kindle, tale mobile, The Wifes pdf, The Wifes Tale eBookI received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways and have chosen to give my honest opinion about itWhile definitely a touching story it almost seems like an overdone and cliched one While I do recognize that this was the recounting of a true story it seems as if it could have been better written; the writing style was confusing for instance it was hard to distinguish from the narrator and from her own thoughts That being said the events in this book are definitely inspiring and sometimes bittersweet which is refreshing amidst the sea of other contemporary true stories
