Product Description

Set against the backdrop of an eerie island town in the dead of winter, The Wife and the Widow is a mystery/thriller told from two perspectives: Kate, a widow whose grief is compounded by what she learns about her dead husband’s secret life; and Abby, an island local whose world is turned upside down when she’s forced to confront the evidence that her husband is a murderer. But nothing on this island is quite as it seems, and only when these women come together can they discover the whole story about the men in their lives.

Brilliant and beguiling, The Wife and the Widow takes you to a cliff edge and asks the question: how well do we really know the people we love?

About the Author

Christian White is an Australian author and screenwriter whose projects include feature film Relic. The Nowhere Child is his first book and one of Australia’s bestselling debut novels ever. An early draft of this novel won the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript. Since publication The Nowhere Child has been shortlisted for major awards including the Australian Book Industry Awards’ General Fiction Book of the Year and Matt Richell Award for New Writer of the Year, and the Indie Book Awards’ Debut Fiction Book of the Year.

Rights to The Nowhere Child have been sold in 16 territories around the world, and were acquired in a major screen deal by Anonymous Content (US) and Carver Films (Australia). Christian’s keenly awaited second book, The Wife and the Widow will be published in Australia by Affirm Press in October, 2019.

Christian lives in Melbourne with his wife, filmmaker Summer DeRoche, and their adopted greyhound, Issy.

Industry Reviews

A nervy, soulful, genuinely surprising it-could-happen-to-you thriller - a book to make you peer over your shoulder for days afterwards. - A.J. Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

[An] outstanding debut. Thriller fans will want to savor every crumb of evidence and catch every clue. White is definitely a writer to watch. - Publisher s Weekly (USA), starred review

[White] is a born storyteller, one who seems to instinctively understand the weave off a proper yarn, and The Nowhere Child is tight, gripping and impressive in all the right places. - The Saturday Paper

Hugely entertaining ... a multifaceted, unsettling debut. - The Age
