Joshua has loved Hannah since the day she married his brother 6 long years ago, but said nothing. According to the Law, he must marry her after the brother's death, so that a child can inherit his property. This is the story of how they each come to deal with the after effects of an abusive first marriage, and the unfolding treachery of the dead man.
I enjoyed this. As the story unfolds, we see how each of the characters changes and grows as Hannah learns to trust, and Joshua comes to understand just what kind of person the brother he loved really was.
The narrator had a good steady pace which suited the book. Each character was clearly recognisable. without any of the unnecessary exaggerations sometimes used to denote characters of the opposite sex. There were a few rather odd pronunciations, but not enough to distract from the story.
All in all, well worth listening to.

Would you listen to His Brother's Wife again? Why?
No, but I generally do not listen to audiobooks again. There are way to many stories out there I need to listen to.
What was one of the most memorable moments of His Brother's Wife?
Without giving too much away, Hannah's sickness.
What about Pamela Lorence’s performance did you like?
Pamela is actually the reason why I listened to this audiobook. I'm familiar with her work and she is a narrator I enjoy.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
This book was out of my typical genre and took me a while to get through, but I did enjoy it. As I don't have much knowledge for the time frame this book was set in, I can't make any comments on historical accuracy, but I found it very interesting.<br/><br/>Some of the book was a bit predictable, but not all, and it was a satisfying read.
