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.

If you could sum up His Brother's Wife in three words, what would they be?
Treachery, Illness, Faith
Who was your favorite character and why?
I liked Taleh so much I want to read the previous book to see her story, she seemed very capable.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Joshua discovers what his brother Levi was planning to do to Hannah. It gave me chills to think about what would have happed if Levi hadn’t drowned.
